World Toilet Summit 2009 presentations now online!

We’re happy to see that all presentations from the World Toilet Summit on December 2-4 are now on line.  Here  they are  for Day 1,  Day 2 (includes our PHLUSH presentations), and Day 3. Since returning from Singapore, we’ve had to tackle the backload of work here and our reporting on the Summit has slowed down.  In fact, we only got through Day 1.  Now that we have all the presentations  we’ll insert them and move forward with the report.  The discussions which followed the presentations were extremely interesting and we look forward to sharing our notes.
