I just found out that Damasio will be speaking at UCSB this Friday and I see you are the contact person?

Last year I saw Damasio speak at a major convention and he filled the Tucson Convention Center's main theater. It seems, well, crazy to have him speak in a tiny meeting room at UCSB.

Can you please see about finding a more appropriate place for him to speak?

Campbell Hall would probably be the right size, but I also realize that is hard on such short notice. But I am sure there are bigger rooms than that tiny McCune room on a Friday afternoon. Maybe even the UCen Pavilion.

I understand your concern but I'm sure that my colleagues that brought him here took the decision of having him talk in a smaller room for some reason... Either he wanted it so or there were no other rooms available... Sorry about that...
