    The Stuff of Thought is no longer an upcoming release. I saw it in Borders this evening.

    Whoops! It’s been corrected :) Thanks!

    I saw Pinker speak about The Stuff of Thought at Cal Tech a few days ago. He was very funny and made the subject interesting and accessible. Well worth it.

    Darn! I wish I would’ve gone now. I planned to be there but I got distracted and never made it over. :-(

    To be fair, in Brighton you may well do better trying to impress a boy (assuming you’re a boy as well, that is.)

    …which is what I’d be doing there, were I not on the other side of the world 😉

    Brighton’s a nice place. I wish I was back there now.
