Seminar redux

The seminar went tolerably well. Better than the Edinburgh seminar, though not as well as the Manchester one.

Some further intrigue about all this. I am one of two shortlisted candidates (the other is a genetic algorithms chap from Harvard), which is a bit on the short side for a lectureship. The reason for this is that these interviews apparently aren't for the advertised lectureship (the OMII post), but as some sort of 'special post' (Eternal Leader's words). I can't work out if this has improved my chances, or if I'm being used as a stalking horse to enable the school to headhunt someone else.

I really am a 'glass half-full' guy, aren't I? Oh well, interview tomorrow morning at 10.30.

But, excuse me from pointing out the obvious, didn't the letter say you were be called for interview in relation to your reenet application for said post?

Dear Dr Gibbins

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer

Further to your application for the above position, I have pleasure in inviting you for interview [...]

I'd call that a fairly conclusive "yes".

Good luck and I hope you prod buttock!
