If you’re interested in molecular motors but didn’t get to this meeting I think you’ll find some useful stuff there. Even if molecular motors aren’t your primary interest, you might still find the first talk by Yale Goldman interesting. He gives an overview of the field and outlines what he thinks are the major outstanding problems. I think that’s great and I would love to see more of it. The leaders in any particular field don’t have a monopoly on good ideas and I’m sure there’s a lot to be gained from not following their advice in some cases, but they are leaders for a reason and it’s important to get their perspective.
My one complaint: they only filmed the speaker’s and not their slides so it’s often difficult to follow the talks if you don’t already know roughly what they’re talking about. Hopefully that will be improved for future meetings.
