Admin note really, do ignore. Sorry to be busy elsewhere and a bit low on the radar, although all that’s about to change (the book is off with the printers, and there are fun activities to come).
I’ve been doing a fair few talks recently, and someone mentioned I should be organised and pimp them on the site, which I will, in the Miniblog or in the blog if there are a few at once. If you ever see I’m doing something near you, hassle me to do something else while I’m there, and kill two birds (Friday 15th I’m in Edinburgh for the lit fest, and 16th I’m at the Green Man festival, lots and lots more to follow).
On that tip, I’m popping over to San Francisco for Sci Foo (at which I will be the least clever person in the room) August 8-10. I’ve no real sense of whether anyone in America wants to hear one of Britain’s leading C-list public intellectuals talk about evidence, medicine, science, pseudoscience, culture and the media, but if anyone has a room, it’d be fun to do something while I’m over there, since I might not be back for a while, so do email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
More importantly, let me know if there are any nerd activities I shouldn’t miss while I’m there (I’ll have about two halves of a day since I need to get back for grant applications) and if there’s anyone in SF I should say hi to. Also, if you’ve been hassling me to do something over the last 6 months, and I’ve been saying “in a few months”, that time is now.
