Subject: [Histonet] Histonet and NSH Conventions

Hello All,
I have only been to 2 NSH Conventions (Salt Lake and Toronto) so 
far, and while I am profoundly impressed with how well they are run 
and the quality of the speakers, I find that they are sooo big that it
virtually impossible to meet anyone "by chance" that you may know 
from the Histonet! For instance, the whole time I was in Toronto, I 
was straining my eyes to read name tags in the hopes of putting  
faces to some (or any) of the many names I am familiar with here 
online- and I found none!

I would like to suggest that a "Mix and Mingle" opportunity for 
Histonet members at the annual convention would be a well 
attended event. An informal gathering, perhaps at lunch time in one 
of the lecture halls or just around the registration area. And 
everyone would be asked to wear name tags that have both the 1st 
and last names nice and big so we wouldn't be a bunch of 
squinters! :-) 

Anyone else feel likewise? Comments? Maybe others enjoy the 
faceless nature of cyberspace!?
