alt: the poster "PF" has posted some good stuff lately, I just wish he would say a littl more about his postings so we might know the 'gist' of what he has posted about.

Seventies Soulchild: PF is the one who is posting links right

daviss: I agree alt

AYWalton: I met Tiya 11 years ago at the conference she organized at Dartmouth. And now she is a MacArthur Fellow! Amazing, indeed.

Seventies Soulchild: I think that the owner depends on members to do the updating.

veeinga: WOW MacArthur huh? Incredible for her
