on the associahedron and its relatives are posted here. A nice introduction and lots of nice pictures of "participants in the associahedron saga" including, for some reason, two of your humble servant. It is good to see many good friends and colleagues, and in particular, to remember fondly Lou's and Bernd's warm hospitality to Misha Kapranov and me during our first year in the US in 1990-91. And I believe, I have first met both Gil and Günter that year, when they were visiting Cornell.
Among other things, Gil (or should I say Gilushka) demonstrates his command of Russian diminutives although Sergey (Seriushinka) needs some more work, I am afraid. :) In any case, many thanks to Gil for a nice posting.
