Having also been banned (with less reasson offered) I sympathise with you. Note however that Day 2 of the conference could be
interpreted as a symbiotic alliance of certain traditional acacdemic memes and the meme meme (it arguably benefits both).

Personally I ( or my memes - I care not) have chosen to go to the conference and have an enjoyable day. My own regret is that
they do not seem to have invited any evolutionary econonmists to contribute to the debate.
