Today I gave a talk to our PL group -- twenty people or so -- about this project. I think the talk went well for the first thirty minutes or so; that was the part of it that I was, you know, prepared for. I was woefully underprepared for the rest, as evidenced by the fact that my co-author had to come up to the whiteboard and essentially give part of my talk for me.
At least it's over. The silver lining: we received a lot of excellent, thoughtful questions and comments during and after the talk, and one of said comments included a rare actual appropriate use of the word "synergy". I was delighted.
