More Events, and a clarification

February 12, 2010

The list we posted earlier today comprised ONLY the events/performances/presentations to be hosted at #class, NOT the table discussions (with the exception of two discussions whose topics had substantially evolved). The rest of the table discussion topics are more or less accurately reflected in our earlier post here. As the discussions fill up with participants, […]

To Complicate Things

January 28, 2010
