    Want a Live Blog from Asilomar?

    Hi, everybody

    Recently it was suggested to me that the community could benefit from hearing about conferences other than Working 2 Walk -- especially the one that happens every other year at Asilomar. I checked to make sure they'd be okay with a live report published to the internet (they said fine) and that I wasn't over-committed for the dates (I can do it).

    My issue is that I can't finance the project myself. When I go to W2W and write the blog from there, I always pay my own airfare. U2FP comps the lodging & registration, or at least they have for the last few years. The Neuroscience Conference organizers aren't going to help, so I'm asking the community.

    Do you want a live on-the-ground report from Asilomar? It's THE major gathering of spinal cord injury scientists in the world, and it's happening Nov 30 - Dec 3. I'm registered to go. I made a gofundme to cover my expenses plus a little to make up for pay I can't earn while I'm doing it.

    Please??? Thank you!!!

    And we just passed the halfway mark. THANK YOU!

    I'm actually dying to do this . . . all the years of live-blogging from Working 2 Walk, and I still have only got to listen to a couple of dozen scientists. I'm most interested in how they talk about the state of things amongst themselves, you know? What they say when the audience is one another and not a bunch of determined people in chairs.
