In a message dated 5/7/2009 6:51:15 A.M. Mountain Daylight Time,
have attended an APIS conference. Imagine a situation where you are sitting
down with a fervent alternative processes practitioner and wanted to for APIS.
What would you tell them?
By the way you wrote "convince them to go to Santa Fe in late July" tends
to make me think you're expecting very hot weather. Several factors
mitigate that. First, Santa Fe is high desert means low humidity.
Second, Santa Fe proper is at 7000' meaning the altitude helps keep things
cool. Third, as I said, it's a desert and deserts get cold at night.
As far as coming to APIS, it is generally a great conference. You will be
sitting with fervent historic process practitioners who are as interested in
your work as you are in theirs. There are people who are rock grounded in
chemistry and science, including at least two PhD chemist to those who have
a more ethereal approach (for albumin, you must first catch the free range
chicken egg before it hits the ground and scrambles the aura).
I have been to APIS since 2001 and have made many friends, had many
marvelous discussions one fantastic meals and truthfully liked the area so much
my wife and I moved here in 2007.
Hope this helps. If you need any more info feel free to write.
