I was suggesting them for future events. MS research is actually very
keen on this type of thing. I thought it would be great to find out
what their POV is. I will pass on an invite for them to participate. (02)
BTW - if I haven't said this before - many thanks for all your hard work
and kudos to you for all the great work you have done for the
community. This is by far the most interesting group I am involved with
and where I learn the most. The atmosphere here is very unique and
conducive to P2P learning. (03)
Cheers ( and beers next time I see you). (04)
