From: Daniel L. Everett <deververb.linguist.pitt.edu>
Subject: Room for LSA Jam Session

For those interested in playing some music with us at the LSA
(guitars, voice, and other nonelectric instruments), I have a
room for the event. If you are coming, contact me via the
Sheraton front desk. We start jamming at 630PM and will go to
about 830. Then we have plenty of time to go hear some electric,
Chicago blues.

	The second lecture in my course on the World Wide Web called
"Critical Semiotics" is now online. The course, sponsored by the
Cyber Semiotic Institute, is embedded in the web site of the _Semiotic
Review of Books_ (located at http://www.chass.utoronto.ca/epc/srb).
Please see the description of the second lecture below.
