Post2 by Bill Idsardi: TalkingBrains: Going mobile

Last week TB East dispatched two undercover agents to MIT's "Whither Syntax?" mini-conference, and one of them (codename "Cookie Master") managed to sneak onto the discussion panel. The report back was that things were entirely too cordial, with pleasantries exchanged by both sides.

This week most of TB East heads out to Kansas for MALC The ideal paper this year would seem to be "MEG evidence for the emergence of Siouan grammatical morphemes" but that abstract was inadvertently classified as spam.

Next week TB East meets TB West at SfN

I forget what's next after that, and I can't think of a smart Pete Townshend reference either.
