back from conference

The 2005 installment of the biannual Conference of the German Anthropological Association (GAA aka DGV) is over and I am well back in Munich. My cyberanthropology workshop now is history—it went well, and from all I heard till now it was very well received, too [Or is it my intimidating personality that no one dares to tell me negative criticism?.] A big Thank You! to everybody who presented a paper in the workshop, and also thanks very much! to everybody who sat in the audience. I enjoyed the interesting questions and the lively discussions very much. My apologies to everybody for my taking the liberty to add a full hour to the workshop’s timeframe. Special apology to Frauke Lehmann, who was forced to present her paper as the last one in the row, way beyond the scheduled time. Unfortunately Castulus Kolo, who had prepared a paper on Cyberanthropology going mobile, couldn’t take part, as he was down with flu—I hope you recovered meanwhile. But nothing will be lost, as I definitely will edit a book containing the workshop-contributions and some items plus in the form of elaborated articles. According logistics already have started. I’ll get back to you soon—for now I will equip myself, as on monday the students will flood in here again.
