It looked good. Way good. A timely building science based addition to
the growing body of serious natural building literature. I look forward
to giving it a real read.
I don't know if it's covered in the book, but one of the glancing topics
at the meeting was if folks in the northeast U.S. are going to have to
start designing for earthquake resistance too.

Even if you don't want to watch the slides, it's worth bringing up for
the terrific soundtrack. Seriously.
