This is the agenda for Boyd and Beyond 2014:
In case you’ve not seen on Facebook or LinkedIn:
Attached is the agenda for Boyd and Beyond 2014. Dave Lyle, a first time speaker, will be our lead-off for Friday morning with War and Metaphor—-unless Robert Coram or Tom Christie show up–Robert is 50/50 and Tom has been invited.
Dave Diehl may have to miss this year and he’s scheduled for 30 minutes on Saturday afternoon. I’d like to fill that 30 minutes—if we can’t, I’ll moveTerry to that slot and we’ll wrap up a bit earlier.
If you have not RSVP’d, please do.
Many will notice Dean Lenane was given 90 minutes–he spoke at the West Coast event earlier this year, and plans to deliver a variation on the theme. The request made sense—and we’ve not seen Dean a few years.
New speakers include: Joseph M Bradley (with OODA and Systems Theory), J.C. Herz (with Boyd and Crossfit), Daniel Grazier (Manoeuvre Warfare–yeah, I spelled that right), Robert Thomas (with a little Boyd-FA Hayek magic), Bill Bon (Boyd and the Bargaining Table), Robert L. Cantrell(Boyd’s Philosophy in the Natural World), and our Stan Coerr (with the enigmatic title: Hell In a Very Large Place).
Terry Barnhart, Michael Moore, Gahlord Dewald, Chip Pearson (welcome back!), and Mark Hart always reliable are returning.
On time: speakers, last year we wandered a bit more than normal. We’ve never been “clock watchers” at these events, but unless the audience is driving you over your limit (which we encourage and enjoy), please try to keep on schedule.
We’re fortunate to have a robust schedule, and Stan and I look forward to seeing everyone. If you’ve not already RSVP’d, please do—I’m keeping a pretty good count.
