Talking Heads at EvoLangX

This year saw the 10th instalment of the EvoLang Conference, and it was also the 15th anniversary of Luc Steels' Talking Heads Experiment (brief review here). In celebration, the Evolutionary Linguistics Association organised a birthday party in Replugged (Vienna). The party not only featured some excellent tuneage by replicated typo's very own Sean Roberts along with Bill Thompson, Tessa Verhoef and me, but it also featured, very aptly, a Talking Heads tribute band headed by none other than Luc Steels himself! For those of you who were there (or weren't there), you can now relive (or see for the first time) the experience through YouTube (extra points for spotting your favourite evolutionary linguists dancing their little socks off):
