  1. Another piece of US centrism. It’s 8pm for us… never mind the rest because the “world” has the highest audience at 8pm. The same way the World Series aren’t actually about the world.

    • @Ion Ion,

      This event is sponsored by Griffith University in Australia The program runs from 12:01 GMT to 19:00 GMT (that’s a total of 19 hours). So what makes you think this is “Another piece of US centrism …”

  2. Does anyone know if this symposium was archived online, either with video or just audio? I would like to view the actual conference, but would be happy to see any notable coverage of the event.

    • @Jessica Horn,
