I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Spurious correlations. When is lunch? Where should I go for lunch? What should I eat for lunch? Incentives. Politics. Economics. Should I have another beer? The tyranny of formative experiences. Tautologies. Unknown unknowns. Non sequiturs. Path dependence. Existence. The news. The twentieth century. Sex. Writing coherently. People. The future. Implicit assumptions. Which details are worth ignoring, and which are not? We're all just computer programs. Is this moldy?
On a typical Friday night I am

Either having a beer, or skyping with my family in Australia (where it's Saturday morning).
