It was great meeting you all! Not a day passed without meeting new people who turned out to be HTLAL members - with varying degrees of activity, though. As Iversen says, we can't tell who is a member or not. At best, you recognize somebody from their profile, but often there is no photo. I spoke to at least fifteen-sixteen from HTLAL.

Summary coming up.

I wish I'd been there with you, guys! I look forward to experiencing the big event vicariously through your eyes and ears for now (and hopefully, a bevy of interesting new videos). :)

At one point there was a guy who
called me by name, and asked if I was a member of some group I did not catch the name of. I was running
towards room three, knowing that I would have to stand for the next two hours if I did not get there in time,
and was so stressed out that I just answered that I did not think so and ran further. Only a couple of minutes
later did it click that he had said HTLAL, so I searched for him for the next couple of hours - and asked every
guy who looked remotely like him if he was the guy who had talked to me earlier (not feeling particularly
intelligent accosting a dozen unknown men who denied having talked to me). I found him in the end, gave
him a good hug and he joined me at the first part of the lecture I was at.


Yeah. I was a bit weirded out after I asked you if you were Solfrid from the Internet forum How-to-Learn-Any-Language and you looked me in the eye and said No and then ran away. :) At the time I couldn't work out if you were actually Solfrid or not, and whether I had either totally creeped out a stranger, or if you were actively avoiding me. I remember talking to my wife on the phone at lunchtime and saying to her that I had this totally weird experience where I approached someone at the meeting and they just totally denied being the person I knew them to be and had then run away from me at high speed. :) Especially as I just wanted to thank them for organizing the original Super Challenge.

It was certainly reassuring when you found me a few hours later and we could at least say hello. I am just sorry I couldn't stay for the rest of the meeting. It would have been very nice to hangout with a few HTLAL people.

Anyone know if they are going to post the videos to the same YouTube channel as last year or if there will be a change? I am subscribed to last years channel.

Yes, everything was filmed and it was said that it will be available on the youtube channel (probably after some editing). There were always two cameras running, and one of them was also used for close-ups whenever questions arose.

Teango you would have loved it ! The traveling was hard and I wasn't able to participate as I would have
liked, but it was truly wonderful to be there. I have photos on my Facebook page. I don't know if you use
Facebook, but I sent you a friend request some time ago.
