Organizing starts here...

Tracy set up Google docs for the organizers, plus a mailing list.
Valeria compile a list of Annie co-authors from Annie's MS Academic Search page plus this blog. Danny to talk to Lauri about family. All to think about a special publication.

A party for Annie!

Tracy, Ron, Danny and I are hoping to organize a party to celebrate Annie Zaenen's lifetime achievements in Linguistics and Language Technology, this September or October in PARC. Annie is celebrating a big birthday, so we hope we can have a beautiful party, with plenty of old and new friends, lots of exciting work to discuss, great food and nice wine.

The idea is to use this blog to organize the party and after the party, we want to keep it as a souvenir, a bit like DannyFest. But we better get the party going first...

The next post is a rough outline of what we discussed on January 26th about the party.
