Today, despite my exhaustion from several days of late nights with NHK, I managed to haul myself out of bed at 8AM to attend the 1st Language Creation Conference over in Berkeley (previously mentioned here). First off, let me congratulate Sai Emrys for putting this together and pulling it off. It was quite a unique and extraordinairy conference. I wish I was more awake so I could participate effectively.
Though a few of the lectures were well over my head (I am interested in language, but I am not a linguist!) I did learn quite a bit and have some fresh perspective on how to approach my own projects. I’ll have to write more about them when I’ve got a chance.
As well, I’ll give some of my thoughts on some of the lectures. Some of them were, like I said, quite good and even if you’re not interested in language would be of interest, particularly the cognitive science lecture.
Meanwhile, though, I’ve got to get some sleep. I’m about to keel over.

Glad you enjoyed it, and that it’s furthered your conlanging. :-)
Please email me a link if you do write more detailed writeups, or if you have ideas / innovations / etc down the line sparked by something at the conference.
