This was my 18th British Psychological Society Annual Conference, and still they can surprise me. In Brighton, it was James Pennebaker (see p.35). At the first evening social event, on the pier, he had spent it being generous, interesting and attentive. As the night drew to a close, he asked me hopefully 'Do you know Catherine Lido? I heard her give an absolutely fascinating talk this morning, I'd really like to meet her.' What point am I making related to this month's content? None really, I just thought Pennebaker's presence at the conference from beginning to end was an example to all, and the type of thing that makes Society conferences so valuable.

I know it's not always easy to make time for The Psychologist (in print, let alone our increasing amount of exclusive online content). And many of you will ruefully say 'summer break? What summer break?' But I hope you get a chance to dip into another packed and varied issue, including some summer fun on p.20.
