Re: Status of Dinosaur Society

Here is the information I have as of the DinoFest Symposium, when I had a
chance to talk to Don Wohlberg for a few minutes.

Quoting an earlier post of mine:

    Don Wohlberg has apparently taken over the remains of the Dinosaur
Society.  In effect, Don IS the Society.  This jibes with discussions with
Thom Holmes (editor and publications manager), and Peter Dodson (founding
member, and former President of the society).  I suppose if he finds it
profitable to bring the society back from the brink, he will - especially
since he has at least 2 years to the next DinoFest, and won't be
substantially distracted by it.  (Don can still be reached at the Academy of
Natural Sciences of Philadelphia - at least as of last week).

        Any other comments or information, feel free to jump in!
