The other person who's gone MIA is one of those problems, Professor Dean Saitta of the University of Denver. Saitta, you'll remember, was scheduled to speak at an upcoming SFTAF event in support of Churchill, but recently said that:
I will not participate unless this is an open event and there is an explicit policy governing recording devices that is even-handedly applied. I've emailed the event organizers asking about their intentions in these regards, and I trust that they will be made clear on whatever publicity finally appears for the event. If they aren't, then I'm gone.Are you gone yet, professor? Or have the geniuses and free-thinkers of the SFTAF assuaged your concerns? I'd love to see the e-mails going back and forth on that. Heh.
