    With a big gathering looming (Glasgow) it is not without a certain
    timeliness that I praise John Lavagnino's report on the humanities
    computing colloquium held at King's College London in May.


    John's report weaves a lovely narrative. There is a flair for the
    personalities involved. It is not a mere reportage. I do appreciate the
    reshuffling of the presenations in his report. He does not follow the
    order of the scheduled presentation. I do like the narrative line he casts
    from the problem of machines dealing with ambiguity through to the
    collaborative mysteries of community via the tension between formalization
    and deformation.

    I wish all who attend the gathering in Glasglow and those of us who will
    follow the proceedings from afar an equally enriching experience.
