    You recently spoke at the opening plenary of the COCH/COSH meeting at the
    end of May. Your topic was modelling. Unfortunately though the event was
    but recent my unaided memory does not serve me well. I recall being struck
    by the typology you presented. If I recall correctly you outlined two
    approaches to modelling: a model _for_ and a model _by_. I believe that
    my recollection of the number of types you discussed is correct but I fear
    that I have failed to correctly recall the prepositions that labelled and
    characterized the two approaches.

    I beg your indulgence and ask if you would be so kind as to offer a brief
    recap of the argument since the typology is not set out in the abstract
    that I and others can access using the URL

    With gratitude for your forbearance,

    Francois Lachance, Scholar of the fading faculties
