Oooh, what questions would you ask Starlight and Lingle?

grin starlight smile re leading questions.

Yes I'd feel like that too.

Okay. Thank you. I'll have a look in more detail and perhaps sign up if it looks interesting.

Probably too late for the SBC thing. No reason I can't write him a letter/email though is there!?

I think to be fair to Awares, the fee is for access to all their online stuff which involves other online discussions at different times etc and they do an online conference every year with lots of contributors. I haven't paid it either, but I thought I'd post in case anyone was interested.

I have lots of questions for him, but they are mostly leading ones.

I'm not paying £5 to challenge him. (guessing that's the purpose of the fee - oh well)

I got sent an email about this - Simon Baron-Cohen is online at the Awares autism conference to answer any questions about autism via a message board. You have to pay £5 to register I think. Here

if anyone is interested.
