Yo, Durianrider! I vote for a 1 week festival. It's the first year, so maybe we should plan small and grow "organically"? Plus, if people want to bang around Asia after the festival, that would free them up to do that. I vote for a date in the summer - later summer the better - although it's probably pretty hot in Thailand in August - but that time of year works for lots of people, vacation-wise. I vote that we all pitch in $250 toward food - or that we all buy our own when we get there. I love that you're saying you'd charge zero, but we should/could all pitch in something to help you organize it since you'll probably be putting it together on the ground there and that's a lot of work and you could use some dough to help make it happen. Let us know. Don't hesitate to ask - donations even. It could go toward a festival headquarters/office where the talks could take place and that could also serve as an info hub. Also, I vote for formalizing the talks a little bit - maybe just have a page on the festival page (maybe host it on 30BAD?) describing what people want to do a talk about and maybe they can post a little video intro of themselves and their topic. I vote that someone (I'll do it if no one else will, but it might be better to have someone familiar with Thailand) put together some info on the hotels in the area of the festival. Just a simple guide maybe with prices/pics. Thanks for jumping in and making this happen. I couldn't see myself going to WFF and I love the idea of the community coming together for the greater good, sharing info and good spirit and great fruit. Thanks!

Dear Kawasaki Jones,
Thank you for your comment.
I appreciate your concerns.
It sounds like you are worried that Michael's company may be exploiting children
I have no knowledge that Michael is exploiting children, not all gem mines in Sri-Lanka are the same.
 Michael is planting lots of fruit trees in Sri Lanka and helping improve the environment.
Love and Peaches,
from Anne XX♥

“During my many trips to Sri Lanka I have purchased some incredible sapphires,” says Michael Arnstein. The incredible sapphires Mr. Arnstein is referring to include the crown jewel of The Natural Sapphire Company, a 69.35 carat intensely colored untreated oval-cut sapphire that Mr. Arnstein purchased in December of 2006. “When I originally purchased the sapphire in Ratnapura, Sri Lanka it weighed 80 carats, having been cut from a 129ct crystal in 1952. However, in order to make a finer stone, we recut the sapphire to create more symmetry, as well as increase the light return, thus improving its pure untreated blue color.”

Call it, "All Vegans Die Within One Month Of Starting Diet" or something like that. Maybe that would draw some folks who wouldn't otherwise check it out? I don't know DR, you're the master of getting the word out. Carry on!

Story
Tagline
I have walked buck naked through the sands of the Sahara even though Buck begged me not to.
Introduction
I was always very strong musically. I played piano in the high school marching band. I ran x-country in high school. I picked Spain. As a boy I had a miniature collie. He wasn't supposed to be but grandma gave him cigarettes. I guess you could say we were a typical small town family. My cousin Scott was a paperboy. But we treated him as if he was real.
Bragging rights
I swam the Nile. Felt more like a Nile and a half.
