Some of you know him'/have heard of him.
Top bloke.
Nothing to sell-just his expertise.

Me too!

I know Prof. Hastings and he would be happy to come and speak (I asked him to). I emailed MN about this a while ago and they expressed interest but I heard nothing back so emailed to jog their memory and they asked who was interested so I need to point them to a thread to show them of the interest expressed.

He is one of the (few) people I rate highly in the world of SN and a lovely man as well.

Would be great to have this on the main boards wouldn't it, and hopefully non-SN posters would join in <hopeful>

moondog Thu 05-Dec-13 19:55:27

Yes please. I read his blog now and then. Obviously a very clever man but his words are so straightforward and simple to read. I'm surprised anyone ever attempts to argue with him grin.

tethersend Thu 05-Dec-13 20:44:39

I would.

tethersend Thu 05-Dec-13 20:46:06

Be interested, I mean. Not shag him. He's no Alistair Campbell grin

Alistair Campbell?? God he's a bore and never belts up about his 15 minutes of fame. Prof Hastings is a million times more interesting!!!

But main board please!

tethersend Thu 05-Dec-13 21:01:09

Well, I could talk to Prof Hastings and shag Alistair Campbell. He doesn't need to talk. Hey presto! problem solved.

I can't help feeling I've lowered the tone of your thread, moondog.

But yes to a webchat.

moondog Thu 05-Dec-13 21:03:15

<heheh >
Not at all.
The Prof would be amused.

If you want him, he will come (as Kevin Costner said about the golfers in the corn. Or was it baseball? One weird film.)
