    Over a thousand views already:



    Facebook really is the place where things get spread/viewed/etc. With media articles/blogs that say how many shares they get from different sources it is normally facebook that dominates. Thanks to all those working to spread good advocacy info there - seems to be the place to go.

    Yeah, only a dozen or so actually showed up--apparently there was the chess championships and a Norwegian guy was winning or something, so people might have stayed home. Also, it snowed a bit yesterday evening--apparently the first snow of the season last night--just a light dusting. Interesting that people still seem to want to hear me say the same things over and over again! I've gotta change my act soon!

    I SO wish I could be there and at the open lecture in Oslo, but was not able to make the journey. So was very grateful that it got live-streamed. Great talk!

    Yes, me too. Had bought the ticket and everything! Too much going on unfortunately, I was not at all pleased to spend my day at the dentist instead of at the lectures in Oslo :thumbsdown:

    I think a lot of patients in Norway exhausted themselves even before the conference began, from all the drama regarding LL, the Institute of Health and the Competence Center, in addition to the letters to the ministers and so on.

    I did hear that all Norway were watching the chess match. It had been going on for a month and millions were watching.

    Ys. Did Carlsen offer the draw in game 12 just to scupper David's audience numbers?

    Unfortunately Facebook’s junior Jacobins censor content that disturbs their special sensibilities. They have not applied that to us, but with another change of whim they could.

    A few years ago Magnus Carlsen donated a signed chessboard for ME research, so who knows :)

    Thank you @Kalliope for posting this. Any chance it's available other than on FB?

    Not that I know of, but I believe Tuller's first lecture in Norway from Tuesday this week in Oslo, also was filmed and I think that one might become available on YouTube in a while.

    this is awesome @dave30th !

    I wish we could read the slides. Be great to be able to see them. At the beginning the fisrt slide was clear - "stupefying paradox" - what a superlative term! :)
