I can't believe that I've given people a chance to talk about their research and this is all I've gotten. It's a great suggestion, but not exactly what I wanted.
Most people wouldn't talk about their research to a complete stranger on the internet anyway - what would your funding body say if you splashed all of your research about before they even know what you have done? I'm assuming that most people's research is alittle bit confidential to some degree.
Usually these things are there to get you to do a literature review about something you might be interested in or know about. Not so that you can ponce ideas of off someone else.
Do some work of your own you lazy bastard..
(no real offence ment here - I was a student and a post grad once - it all seems very difficault and depressing when writing a Ph.D. thesis.... that is until you get a real job and realise that you can't just waltz in just in time for lunch, do a couple of hours work and go home again... ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS!!!!!!!!!
