Erowid Announcement #64
Jan 31, 2006
Friends of Erowid,

The Erowid crew just returned from the LSD Symposium in Basel, Switzerland about 10 days ago. It was a great event with people from all over the world congregating to discuss LSD and wish Albert a happy 100th birthday. Dr. Hofmann seemed to be in great spirits and health. We're glad we were able to be part of this memorable event. (see item #1 below for more info)

So now we're back at home, playing catch-up with all the projects and business that continued on without us while we were gone. If you're waiting for something from us, give us another week before you assume we're not getting to it! :)

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at
