Memphis was hot, sticky, and sultry. Not the typical melieu for a bunch of buttoned-down academic-types, but it worked. Gave my paper, “Rhetorical Delivery and the Remediation of Hypertext,” to a crowd of 10 or so at 8:30 on a Saturday, so it went as well as I could expect. Socialized with good friends, ate good food, drank in a bar that had once been a bordello, listened to a panel talk on satanic death metal, saw the world-renowned Peabody Ducks, saw the Civil Rights Museum, and sweated off nearly 5 pounds. All in all, a good haul.
Next up, I’m participating in DMAC, so expect a quasi-update after the deeds are done.
