Well, our blog is running fine, but our Repeat website, including the calendar of architectural events, is currently down, the victim of a server migration at my hosting service that so far is not running smoothly. (My email is also down; if you need to write me, call or use my alternative email address or leave a comment here and how to get back to you. )
In the interim, we're passing on information about a lecture we just heard about . . .
