« Meeting of the Minds | Main | Evolang Retrospective »


Michael Balter

Actually, Deacon did not come to Utrecht. He was not able to fly to Europe because of the Iceland volcano situation. So what is the source of your resume of his talk? He did not submit an abstract, at least not in time for it to be included in the meeting's abstract booklet. Perhaps he sent it to you personally? All of your posts about EVOLANG8 imply that you were at the meeting--were you?
BLOGGER: Ah. Yes, this time everybody gave me the slides in advance so that I could think through my reports and get something posted as soon as the session is over. I do it that way whether or not I'm attending the conference because it lets me get a summary up as soon as possible. I didn't make it too Evolang this time, because I've been pretty badly hit by the recession. I did apply for a grant to go, but bloggers are not high on the list of people supported by grants. So this was virtual coverage. Caught by that dang volcano!

Can u share pdfs or ppts?? The evolang site is rather frugal.
BLOGGER: Sorry, when I request papers etc. I promise the providers that I will not spread their stuff all over the Internet. Since I am totally dependent on others for all my reporting, I have to keep my word. However, the authors often post their stuff on their various websites. Good luck.
