i just composed a long, long post and lost it. it was about Translating Translation, a beautiful event we held yday featuring Masha Zavialova and Christophe Wall-Romana. I can't stand that i lost it having labored over it for some time and described a lot of stuff in detail, with loving adjectives and naming lots of names, and full of content about the content of the talks which were spectacular. this is so unfair. well perhaps it was meant to be.
