"I have always gotten much more out of the final official analysis sessions than I have ever gotten out of reading any post on the internet."

I've found it to be situation specific. Sometimes the official account offers a lot. Sometime a little. It really depends. Typically the "official" reports which have been most helpful have been from the dive community itself whether compiled under the auspices of a government agency or not. Not internet speculation, but responsible members of the dive community who have committed to comprehensive accident analysis.

"I am excited about the view that Ken said that the Coroners office is now taking in looking at the individual sequences of events that produce the final outcome. It is a very thorough methodology that is used in many other fields to study accidents and to learn the most from them that can be learned. It is not a methodology that involves finger pointing or any predetermined agenda whatsoever. "

I agree. I think it's great. To the extent that such is made available to the diving public in a timely manner it would be a great and welcome change.
