This year, I had to miss the SSPP (Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology) annual conference due to getting the flu the day before. I was scheduled to present my paper “Gossip: Social Intelligence and Evolutionary Origins.” In my absence, Theodore Bach, who was to serve as commentator, was kind enough to read the paper for me and even take questions.

To everyone I missed at the conference, sorry I didn’t get to see you. Maybe next year.
