Through conlanging. Alex co-ran the 2nd LCC by virtue of having just joined Berkeley for his math PhD and being on CONLANG; we grew to be friends in the process. A bit over a year ago friends changed to not-quite-just.

If anything, we've prodded each other to do more a bit. The 'pkt' psuedo-conlang / wordplay / extension / whatever included in the LCC2 program was a mutual creation; recently we started figuring out how we might be able to make a conlang entirely mediated by touch (of the sort where we could talk to each other discretely, masked by normal behavior like holding hands). He's more of an 'actual' conlanger than me - he's done relays, made more than one language, etc. I'm more interested in the theoretical / boundary-pushing aspects.

There was a thread about a year ago that mentioned it. - Sai
