Thanx! The article provides a plain and even-toned description of the event
and some of its speakers. Like...wait, the concept is arising from the

Oddly enough, it's the alternative press outlets like The Willamette
Weekly that are preserving many of the traditions of modern journalism.
This observation equally goes for some of the once-alternative esoteric and
occulture movements. They have emerged as preservers of an outlook that
sensationalizing media is leaving behind.

(My favorite esoteric and occult bookstore ever, Berkeley's departed
Books, had a nice little shelf section devoted entirely to the works of
Dick and associated critical post-modern commentary.)
