because they came up tonight...

It's time to send these for another go round my part of the blog-o-verse. How (many) geeks communicate: Tact filters and fanspeak.

Edit: ozarque's journal also came up in the discussion last night. Check it out in general (along with her books). One relevant entry: http://ozarque.livejournal.com/176349.html (the discussion far more than the original post).

And I had totally forgotten Jeff (the "Tact filter" author) was now on my f-list. *waves* Hi, Jeff! He points me to another discussion of the Tact filters essay: http://dawnd.livejournal.com/213255.html?thread=1482503

There was a rather extensive discussion of the tact filters essay back in February in dawnd's livejournal.

Thank you! I had forgotten finding your journal--I read so sporadically sometimes I don't read updates from you for months. When I do, I especially love stories of your students. :)

Your "tact filters" essay is something that really sticks with me. I bring it up every few years among different groups of friends and it always seems to strike a chord with at least some of the listeners. As it did last night with a group largely composed of members (or alums) of the Harvard-Radcliffe Science Fiction Association.

The back of my mind tells me that your wife is Nancy, and that we were on the same pregnancy list six years ago. At any rate, I read the tact thing and said "wait, I think I know that guy's wife!"

The world, it is small.

Indeed it is. Nancy says "Hi."

Thank You! I have been to trying to find that "fanspeak" text. I read it some time ago and couldn't remember the source. Thank you!
