I hadn’t said anything about it because it had been looking increasingly likely that a building set of crises and family obligations would make it impossible for me to go to Philly and present at the conference there.
Unfortunately, I was right… So I’m not there. I’m very bummed about this.
I was *really* looking forward to Jorge’s paper as well and the opportunity to meet him in the flesh. Alas, next year perhaps… (And send me a copy of your paper, Jorge–I stil want to read it!)
I did send in a copy of my own paper and handouts. Hopefully it will get to the right people by the right time and someone will be able to read it in my place.
That’s about the story of my life at the moment.
Oh no! Many prayers, Derek!
Sorry to hear it. Wish you were there, too….
