This is about both natural & artificial intelligence, not only as scientific disciplines but as art, policy, and politics. I am interested in EVERYTHING, so I strongly advise you to navigate by the labels at the bottom of posts to find more of whatever brought you here. This blog started as a series of open letters home during my first academic sabbatical, so gets decreasingly professional as you read back. Which, oddly, some people do. I also microblog on twitter as @j2bryson.
