      I second that, Teresa- I saw him speak at TESOL Madrid, and again in
      Barcelona - he's one of the few ELT conference speakers that can engage an
      audience without any visuals at all.

      I can recommend that fabulous Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language and he's
      also written a fabulous book called "txtng - the gr8 db8", which debunks the
      myth that text messaging is bad for the language.

      finally, good news for anyone going to BRAZ-TESOL next year - he'll be there
      as a plenary speaker I think.

      Best,

      Graham
