RE-CAP May 29, 2015

The SouthPole-sium v.2 has come and gone. The opinion of most was that it was a great success. 1) the weather was reasonably good though brisk; 2) Lunga House—our venue—was terrific; 3) lots of interesting talks, comments and discussions were enjoyed; and 4) no real crises crept in to spoil things.
