Really enjoyed this, thanks for posting. I also really enjoyed the argument but I think the central critique sometimes mistakes Heritage's analytic attitude for his epistemological commitments. Sure, as I've seen at some very enjoyable data sessions at UCLA, you can look at a spate of interaction and assume that participants bring a kind of Machiavellian intelligence to the situation and approach their achievements in a Holmes-like deductive way. Or, like other analysts, notably Goodwin & Goodwin, you can bring a different analytic attitude to the data and marvel at the participants' abilities to coordinate joint actions. Both these attitudes get the job of data analysis done without losing touch with member's orientations, and both inevitably seep into the presentation of the data in academic papers. In the latest debate in ROLSI on quantification and coding in CA, Stivers writes about how CA can play nicely with quantification oriented fields, most obviously medicine where much of Heritage's latest work is directed. That may be the kind of deal Lynch is talking about, but I don't think it necessarily compromises the strength of the EM work that goes on in the data session.

I've been going to the Diwana since I was a kid. It was excellent 30 odd years ago, and literally nothing has changed. This is an amazing achievement for a restaurant in central London to stay this good and this reasonably priced for so long. I've been going to the Diwana about once per month for all this time, and although quality inevitably does vary (chefs change shifts, you get more or less cardamom in your Lassi), it's still always phenomenal value and usually, one of the best Indian vegetarian meals you can buy in London. The coconut chutney is wonderful, the panni puris are delicious and fun to play with, and the deluxe dosa is a reliable treat. They are also very vegan friendly and will happily make you some non-dairy coconut chutney if you ask. Obviously I'm biased as I've been going here my entire life and feel sentimental about it, but having watched so many family restaurants in London get successful, renovate, expand, then kick up the prices or lower the quality of the food - it's really impressive that this restaurant has been such a reliable and constant part of London life. That's what the fifth star is for!
