Several of our students will be presenting at the upcoming UVU philosophy conference, and the keynote address for the conference will be given by our Prof. Huenemann (on Nz).  The conference is April 8th (Wed) at UVU and goes from 8am to 6pm.  

I am posting this so that students who are presenting or students that are interested in attending can use this blog to organize carpooling.  As far as I know, the exact location of the conference sessions on UVU’s campus is not yet determined, someone please post that info here once you get it.

  1. I’m ‘bumping’ (silly internet language, why must you curse me?) this topic because we are so close to zero hour.
    I have the capacity fit four fairly comfortably in my car, for those who are presenting (I know Carson is one, and we have talked about this before) and those who plan on attending.
    Personally, I’m hoping to catch the whole thing, which would have me leaving here before 6 am. I’m young and angry enough to pull it off, but I can compromise for those who would like to leave just a bit later. I will be leaving to get there by 1100 without compromise, so dialog and hard decisions will be needed.
    No afternoon rooms have been announced yet, but Campus looks small enough that it shouldn’t be an issue.
    I’ll also be staying throughout the conference, so take that into consideration.

    If you would like to discuss potential for carpooling, do so here. Plan ahead, I have no tolerance for flaky schmucks. If you wait until the last minute and then decide that yeah, you would like a ride, you are perfectly free to find a damn taxi service and the money to pay them off.

    Fair Warning: I’m a nice guy but I drive with people to the tune of irreverent humor or attempts at heady conversation (of course this often derails into Star Trek). I also listen to mix of Extreme Metal music and Classical, which makes sense from their spirit but can be irritating to some. I will try to keep it quiet if anyone is sleeping.

    I actually can’t wait for this and am very excited for it and the people involved, I just want to get this ball rolling. Being in the Army taught me quite a bit about logistical problems and bad leadership, so I want to avoid those consequences.
