[Xmca-l] Re: Polls are Open



Mike,
David , in an off-list correspondence , told me that we are now ways away from the beginnings ; we should see if we are now in the middle or in the end . I considered it right . What remains for us to think about is whether reciprocity , interaction , maybe dialectics are things which could be agreed upon . What used to come up as muddy waters is now gone with the wind hopefully ! Thanks a lot !

With all of the demands on everyone's time, Rob, knowing what and how to
read as a means of pursuing one's projects is tough. Reviewers make
judgment calls. Sometimes there is news there to excite you, sometimes to
bore you, sometimes to irritate you. Hopefully there is something of use
there for everyone.

Lets see what the wisdom of the crowd tell us regarding choice of article
and hope that the crowd will be interested enough in the results to join in
the discussion! Hopefully the author can be talked into participating as
well; providing authors with feedback in a hurry is our anachronistic form
of social media.  :-)

Meantime, there's that interesting discussion about the precedence of deed
and word which is always interesting to think about.

Hoping for a spot of your English rain here.
