Heather MacAllister's notes for her keynote address to the NOLOSE conference in September 2006:

http://nolose.org/06/hm_keynote.php

These are notes so there are parts where the flow breaks into "still-to-do" lists and there's some repetition.

This is relevant beyond the fat dyke community. It talks about history and intergenerational communication and love of community and the meaning and possibility of gatherings and sexuality and appearance and social competitiveness and inclusivity and discrimination and health care and risk taking and identity politics and includes a very interesting act of verbing.

(You can get this one on a poster at http://www.cafepress.com/speceng - several other of his poems are also available in various forms there).

Cosmology: A User's Manual, by John M. Ford )

Here is a moving memorial post from his partner [livejournal.com profile] elisem.
