Next OTREG Meeting - March 13 in London

Dear All,

We would like to thank you for making the 23 Jan 2009 meeting so successful. All the presenters found the discussion extremely helpful (Andre and Marcus doubly so, I hope :). I am attaching a few pictures (taken by Henri Schildt, who can not only recite the 30 volumes of Giddens blindfolded and with his hands tied behind his back but also, as you will agree, take some very good photos). 

The next meeting will be on Friday, March 13 at the same venue (2:00pm-5:30pm). Please let me know if you would like to present. 

Finally, if you have questions or comments, you can comment on these blog posts using the 'comment' feature at the foot of each posting.
