"What people "say" they want and what they actually respond to are often two different things." Exactly.

Perhaps though, it will be time soon for me to roll up my research sleeves and truly start putting it all to the test. In fact, I'm beginning to make connections in both "academia" and the "community" to do just that. So, if you see me in a club with my laptop, come over and say hi :)

That sounds like fun!, good luck at it.
