  • Who came up with these 5 dilemmas? Prof Hoffstedder or Fernando Lanzer? If the former, than this is just recap of someone else's 5 spectrums, no? Not sure where the orginal thought comes in. But maybe I'm missing a detail …

  • only 1/10th of the presentation time was dedicated to what to do with all this information. A suggestion would be that this wonderful information be married with "so what" suggestions for each point raised instead of waiting to do it all at the end.
