A funny conversation...

An English professor just called to inquire after one of my LJ entries!
He had attended my presentation this spring at the KSU Cultural Studies Symposium on Science Fiction and the Brain. It seems that he later heard from one of my colleagues that I had written about meeting Nancy Kress. Well, as it turns out, he was writing a 700-word synopsis of the keynote addresses and wanted my recollection of the title of her short story ("Our Mother, Dancing" IIRC).

Then he remarked, "Well, I don't know if you'll be interested in next spring's Symposium... it's on Sex (and the Body Politic)... but anyway, the year after that..."
Wot?! We're computer scientists, traskit! We have a reputation to uphold! :-) :-D
