Last year a group of 15 of us from Veggie Boards and Vegan Central met up in San Francisco and went to this event. We listened to John Robbins, and his son, Ocean, speak. This year has some really great speakers and I'm definitely going to go.



I'm not looking to arrange any flights and hotels for anyone, but if anyone wants to go, I'll be there!

If I didn't live on the other side of the world, I would totally be there. It looks really cool.

Julie Butterfly Hill is still alive no less? I thought maybe she wasn't Dont know why, just a hunch I got from somebody who had read her book/s... Anyway, yay! (Someone correct my sorry ass if I am wrong).



Anyway, MIKIE, this thread is convenient and semi-relevant for me to dump of some SanFran info you might like to browse which I found NOT with this thread in mind but I guess it can go here:



sooo Mikie, or whomever interested, here's a bit (or a lot, depending on your attention span) of history to current day (news/documentation)-archive material!



http://www.archive.org/mediatypes-br...ion=shaping_sf

Ths page is a linklist of many SanFran subjects to choose from here, one subject listed there in amongst topics like SanFran social history etc, is Critical Mass -->>



http://www.archive.org/search.php?qu...ical%20Mass%22



Also see here for popular CM police riot download item:

http://www.archive.org/details/ssfcm97

note: site above shows the following link for probably equally broadranging SanFran info->> www.shapingsf.org



At the latter "Shaping SanFran" site you see these links, pretty unmissible I would think!!

http://www.natureinthecity.org (what it says)



http://www.counterpulse.org

CounterPULSE: the new name for 848 Community Space

It's all stored in banks with really thick doors and armed guards, though.

Just thought I'd throw a reply in here since it's this weekend. I'm cohosting a breakfast at my place that morning, so I probably won't get there until about 14:00. I'll probably leave about three hours later so I can make dinner for my roommates. I really hope Ingrid is speaking during the three hours I'll be there!
