Subject: Re: [Humanist] 32.507: a text editor for "entexutualizing" oral discourse Dear Iian, Thank you so much for your response and for your accessible introduction to the ins and outs of your system. I have tried to follow along with the exchange on Humanist messaging on this and have lots of questions. I would love to see your pre-publication article and to speak with you once I have had time to patch over enough ignorance so as to make best use of your time. Please feel free to use my gmail (firstname.lastname@example.org) for your manuscript and for scheduling a video demo. I look forward to learning more!
