Hmm, the PIA conference eh...did you also receive your one (1) free set of standard issue cultist robes and a mini travel shrine to Darth Spiller? Oh oh, don't forget the eternal servitude...

Sad, very sad. The conference was the BEST event I have attended during my entire university experience, actually. It was not the PIA element, but meeting with the Sri Lankan, East Timorese, and not to mention the Chinese delgates that enriched my time. Also an amazing intelligent and wonderful man from Sherwood Forest UK, Mr David Pickles. The highlight for me. So, Citizen #381277, the greatest thing about free speech, is the opportunity to attend an 'establishment' event, and mold it into your (my) own socalist and environmental learning event. A great success!!!!!

Not...quite.
I'm sure the conference was a great learning experience - presented from the point of view of the establishment. These conferences are what we make of them, naturally, so what is your perception of PIA now, keeping in mind the legalistic nature of their 'Code of Conduct'? I'm intrigued...

Perception - the eye of the beholder
PIA Code of Conduct - out of date, and not relevant. Canada's code of conduct - more like it! Me, I went for the speakers. Am I a member, by default, yes, the elective auto enrolled me as a member. Perception of PIA. A whole is only as good as it's parts, and I have chosen parts that suit the furthering of my education and career, not the party, pubs or smooozing. Great place to make non-metro-victorian contacts. It could have been run by the Yes Men, and I will still have got my 'good bits' from it! Perhaps it demonstrates the lack of inspiration in the halls of uni, or indeed in the minds of those who lecture us at uni? Perhaps an non-victorian-centric perspective was refreshing? Thanks for the delving into the depths of whatever your angle is Citizen etc???
