    Anybody see Sir Richard on Channel 5 last night? He talked a lot about non-genetic evolution through the medium of language, which I thought was going to lead into a discussion of memes, but then seemed to veer off into a lot of stuff about 'purposiveness' (I suspect this is going to be his next big thing), and not a single mention of the m-word...... Baroness Susan Greenfield (an ex-classmate of Sue Blackmore in Oxford in the 70s) is on later in the week talking about consciousness - in fact it might even be tonight.

    (Sir Harry Kroto was on Tuesday night's program, and Sir Steven Hawking on Monday - perhaps the series is actually about the homours system......)
