Subject: [obol] Re: question of chat taxonomy
This is exciting and very interesting to read the article as the author
takes us step by step through his thinking process. I had no trouble
accessing the article.

Here's a link to the journal's Table of Contents.

The article is the last one listed, under the title of "Featured Photo".
Excellent photos as well. The listing is a live link, so when you tap on
it, you're taken right to the article.

Thank you Larry!
