EDIT Aug 2, 2011 - Does anyone know if you are locked into the room for the day or if you can switch rooms from session to session? I definitely hope we can go mobile. Also, why on Earth would they schedule Stephan Guyenet and Emily Deans in the same timeslot....ah yes, because God and/or Darwin (you can choose) hate me.
Here is the speaker schedule for AHS (to clarify for pervs like Meredith - Ancestral Health Symposium) - http://ancestryfoundation.org/Schedule.html
I???m really bummed Kurt Harris bailed, but there will still be a lot of great presenters. Even more importantly many of y???all will be there, so I can finally put a name to the face (particularly Kamal, though he will always be a hot French chick to me).
QUESTION - Regardless of whether you???re attending, which presenter would you be most eager to see and why? Write-ins are welcome but I am referring to scheduled presenters
As much as I totally have a man crush on Stephan Guyenet (hey, I thought we were in the trust tree!), I don???t think I need a ???whole ???nother??? primer on Food Reward after thoroughly reading parts 1 through???lost count. I???m going to force myself to attend the sessions with presenters who I do not routinely follow/read so I get a different perspective and maybe even learn something new. Crazy talk!
Being a contrarian like many of us Paleo folk, I actually am looking forward to Don Matesz???s presentation. I foresee 4 possibilities
1) He pulls a Mission Impossible and turns out to be Dean Ornish - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOmNYE9Hhhg
2) He???s really a male version of a Fembot working for the USDA. To wit, a Manbot - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ONo_cA6qAU
3) He provides substantive and thoughtful commentary that helps me understand his radical about-face
4) He is a let down and I've lost 45 minutes of my life that I can never recover
Ok, I know, I know. The likely answer is clear???.he is a Manbot. Yeah baby!
Also, not that anyone asked for my opinion, I think next year they should reconsider the name to be the P.A.N.T.S. Party ??? People Against Neolithic Toxic Substances - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKgurjb8TCs
If nothing else, you are all invited to my pants party anytime you would like.
BTW ??? I don???t think there is anything more Paleo than a little levity. Life is serious enough. Laugh for (insert Omniscient being of choice here)???s sake! Then we can all go back to debating politics, religion, etc. concurrently with reading the latest PubMed article about leptin resistance, dopamine receptors, NAFLD, and the tweaking of macronutrient ratios to 0.0001% accuracy. Or at least that's what I will be doing.
Peace out, Aravind (aka GW)

Since we're going out on a theoretical limb here, I'm going to take it one branch further. I'd like to see Charles Darwin present. It would be so cool to see the perspective of the OG paleo mack (even if he didn't recognize it himself).
Other than that, and Kurt Harris, darn near everyone is presenting. (including many paleohackers! chris master-j, melissa, richard nikoley, etc etc). Is Paul Jaminet going to be there? That might be one possibility.

I'd like to see inthewoo square off with SG. She is commenter rocketed SH because of her experience. He is Mr bench top research. Nice incongruous pair

A lot of that looks great. I would most of all want to see Emily Deans and Jaime Scott on diet, lifestyle, and resiliency. They're both extremely interesting and the topic is one that I'm interested in. Nora G, Seth Roberts and anything else on the mind would be my bias.
Also Melissa on butts and poo is a must.
Darnit there are so many great wants. head esplode
