Last month Jonathan Godfrey travelled from New Zealand to the UK, to attend
the 2023 R Project Sprint in person. He's still in the UK. He was kind
enough to invite me to meet with him after the sprint. Last Sunday I met
him at the University of Warwick, and we had several hours getting to know
each other better, and discussing matters such as:

   - The importance of community
   - The R Journal moving to HTML
   - Creating HTML from the LaTeX source for R documentation
   - The arXiv accessibility initiative
   - For R, a browser-based REPL (read print eval loop)

At Thursday's TeX Hour Jonathan G and I will review and continue our
conversation, and you are invited to listen and also join in if you wish.
I'm looking forward to this.

In case you didn't know, Jonathan G is a blind senior lecturer in
Statistics at Massey University, New Zealand. He's also a proficient R
user, who prepares teaching materials using R-Markdown.
