Let me know if I've missed any.

Now, I feel that the AIA is a good excuse for another Blogging Pompeii Social Event! I suggest that we meet after the 'Pompeii' session on Friday afternoon, and retire to the closest bar for an hour or two. (This is not restricted to Blogging Pompeii contributors - anyone who wants to come and talk Pompeii is welcome). So, who's game?

Sounds great! I'll be there!

Eric Poehler said...

A cool drink runs a close second to talking about Pompeii for me, so count me in too.

Rob Brown said...

Due to prior commitments I can't make Anaheim....very sad especially after looking at the Pompeii speaking schedule. I would have loved to hear what was being presented. Have a drink or two or three for me and hopefully I will get a chance to meet people next year.

Steven Ellis said...

Yep, i'll be there. I'm chairing the session, Jo, so let me know if you want me to spread the word that way.

Jo Berry said...

That is an excellent idea, Steven! Thank you! The more the merrier!

Massimo Betello said...

I will be there!

Jennifer Stephens said...

Great idea, Jo! Arthur and I look forward to it.

Francesca Tronchin said...

I'll be there as well!

Sera Baker said...

Best of luck to all the presenters. Wish I could be there but finishing up the doctorate means I'll miss both the papers and the drinks. Enjoy!
