The Hobbit meets its public

A cast of Homo floresiensis is on display during a conference on the diminutive species at Stony Brook University entitled “Hobbits in the Haystack.” I hope to have more news about this meeting soon, but note that you can watch a live Webcast beginning 9:30 am today EDT.

This sounds like a very interesting meeting, to which I would definitely go, if I were in the area. For the record, though, I'm kind of "agnostic" as to just who or what these "hobbits" actually represent, given the fierce and inconclusive arguments on both sides. I would be very interested to see your thoughts on this matter.
