Unfortunately I don't have internet access here in Nottingham. Although the Hall of Residence I am in provides internet acess, my laptop seems to be only one unable to connect to the internet, no matter what I try or how often I call the helpline.
In addition, at the moment everything here is quite stressful and tiring, so that I have hardly the time and energy to read anything. Also, I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford Tomasello's new book (But check Edmund Blair Bolles' great first post about it)
I wasn't even able to register for any extraordinary seminars (but at least next year I'll have one on the philosophical implications of Darwinism and one about Darwinism and Creationism in America), so I'm not too enthusiastic about the whole situation at the moment.
The only thing I'm really looking forward to at the moment (apart from my laptop working again, but this hope i fear is illusory) is cognitive linguist Bregette Nerlich's inaugural talk on October 30.
I'll post again when I've settled better and have access to the internet at least on a regular basis.
