The prospectus discussion went well. I refused to be defensive (although that tends to be the general climate in these things). The main lesson I took from this workshop: Having a group of mostly-uninterested colleagues discuss your work for two hours is a bit much, even if it goes well, and I must make a point of offering more friendly comments to break up the second-hour tension for others…

So. Overall, not bad. I got some good suggestions, and the general consensus of this particular workshop is that my work, while admittedly freakishly marginal, is “interesting”. So yay.
