To Herb and all,
It's hard to contain my excitement about this conference, the opportunity to meet some of you, and perhaps most importantly to struggle together to develop science that serves the people. I came to find out about Science for the People and this listserv in particular through my own ponderings and research about the roles of scientists and engineers in making revolution and counterrevolution. My political and scientific education began as I grew up watching the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions and financial catastrophes throughout high school and college, and I quite certainly feel like I have a lot left to learn about the relationships between war, profit, science, technology, and people. My hope is that attending this conference will connect me with people who are willing to share their knowledge and experiences from struggle, and to hopefully engage in new forms of organization with some of you.
Anyways, I feel like I'm gushing here...but I am truly excited to hear about this opportunity. Hurray!
