Life has been crazy busy. Busiest it's been since 2014, which was my personal Year of (Work) Hell.
I think one thing that is interesting is the growing public awareness of historical linguistics. We have much more work to do, but it's encouraging to see the use of Proto-Indo-European in popular media.
Most famous is probably the use of Proto-Indo-European in the movie Prometheus. Featured heavily both by the android David and others (being intentionally vague for those of us who have not seen the film).
Also worth a quick mention is that three "quasi" dialects of Pre-Proto-Indo-European were created for the video game Far Cry Primal.
It's encouraging to see greater use of historical linguistics in the use of major artistic pieces.
