Sunday morning I was moderator for a panel titled Poetics, Affirmation, and Dissensus, with Amaranth Borsuk (a new faculty member at our host institution), Elizabeth Frost and Cynthia Hogue. Second panel of the morning brought us Jeanne Heuving, who organized the conference, Peter O'Leary and Lissa Wolsak on Poetics and the Medium of Language. Noontime began the second series of short postings, during which my grad school prof David McAleavey, with a title out of Lenin, talked about What to Do -- at the close of which he did it --
This is Larry Sammons. He wasn't at the conference. Larry's the director of exhibits and facilities at the zoo in Seattle, and knows a few things about media poetics. I've known him since I was twelve years old, and we spent a few hours after the conference doing what we did back then, with better instruments these days, before I had to head out to the airport.
