I want to thank all the bloggers who linked to Modern Paleo over the last week -- and what better way to do that than to offer them some link love in return?
- Ancestral Health Symposium
- The Playful Spirit
- Feel Good Eating
- Healthcare Epistemocrat
- Low Carb Cooking in Style
- Muscle and the City
- Mike's Eyes
- The Healthy Skeptic
Regarding the first -- and most awesome -- link, I would be remiss not to say something about the upcoming Ancestral Health Symposium. As you might have heard, the symposium will be a two-day event in Los Angeles next summer -- i.e. 2011. The list of presenters, although still tentative, looks sensational. To convey my own enthusiasm, the best I can do is quote Robb Wolf:
I wanted to let people know about the upcoming Ancestral Health Symposium: The Human Ecological Niche and Modern Health. The exact date has not been set yet but it should be mid-late summer of next year.If you might be interested in attending, you can sign up to receive e-mail updates. I'm certainly going to be there, provided that it doesn't seriously conflict with OCON 2011 (July 1-9). And I'll definitely blog more about the event as details are posted.
The concept is to bring together prominent thinkers in the areas of evolutionary biology, paleolithic nutrition and related topics. When I first heard about the event I immediately made a note in my "to do" list to book travel to the event. Then, shockingly, I was asked to present at the event. It's tough to put into word how excited I am for this event. Many of the presenters are literally my heroes and hold more influence in my life than any politician, rock-star or movie personality. What can I say, I'm a geek!
Honestly, my only complaint about the symposium is that we have to wait so long for it to happen! (Plus, I hope that it's not actually like Woodstock, as that event was highly uncivilized!)
Update: For those of you looking for something sooner, check out Mark Sisson's PrimalCon. It runs from April 23rd to Sunday, April 25th in Oxnard, California. (Alas, travel is not in the cards for me right now.)
