I just got back from Wiscon, where I talked to people both about Mammothfail and The Yiddish Policemen's Union.

I think I'm in over my head on both topics and have deleted the two posts I wrote.

FWIW, I'm glad to have learned about Mammothfail from you.

I'd like to hear more, if you can handle it. And what conclusion you've come to, if any.

Love, C.

Like Josh, I was glad you posted about Mf. I don't get around the blogosphere all that often and the prod to go take a look again was helpful.

I want to say "I don't know why you'd feel you have to have it all together and under control to post," but that'd be disingenuous 'cos that feeling often stops me from making comments in various places on the wide web. Issues seem so big and anything I could say so small, partial, inadequate... But I tend to think that's a negative, self-defeating voice in my own head.

FWIW, I'm usually provoked to thought by your posts, in a positive way, even if they're short. And the stuff you said at the Wiscon 'writing disaster' panel on Monday morning (which was service 'above and beyond' in terms of being awake and coherent, alone) was extremely interesting and I've found myself going over many of your points and ideas in my head, and making notes to check out the sources you mentioned. My friend and I were both glad we made the effort to attend.
