The 2002 Charles Simonyi Lecture

I've just come back from this lecture. More on it later, I hope. It was given by Steven Pinker and introduced by Richard Dawkins. Very stimulating.

To give you the flavour, here's the conversation I had with The Lady, just before I went:
Lady: Aren't you a bit scruffy to be going to a lecture?

Josh: No. It'll be mostly academics there...
In fact, I felt overdressed. I sometimes think she gives advice to Susanna and Trinny...

Oh, by the way, I already had Pinker's book The Blank Slate. Riveting.
