I haven't seen anyone else writing anything about it in response to my last postings, the talk, or the draft that's on my LJ, so I figured the topic was a bit dead here for a while. I am slowly working on that draft; I've been occupied lately with other things (like, say, trying to find a job so I don't starve), so haven't had much spare energy for NLF2DWS work. :-/ Of course, this is also influenced by the former - when there's less feedback, it's also less externally rewarding, and I'm human enough that that is a factor. Soyeah. I've not seen anything that I could respond to about it, I have a few things that are in queue for me to address but haven't gotten to yet (grr), and will be working on the draft over time. I've also been toying with the idea of making that draft into a pitch for a PhD thesis topic. I think doing it properly - and elaborating the various philosophical, linguistic, etc implications - would require that level of effort (and research), and it'd be nice to be able to do it as a full-time thing. Of course, trying to find someone who'd sponsor that may be difficult... - Sai
