China Miéville talk tonight

Just a quick reminder: China Miéville talks tonight on "Cognition as Ideology: A Dialectic of SF Theory." Click for info. He's a great speaker, both humble and smart, witty but serious. And a damn fine writer.

Maybe we'll be able to take him out again for a beer or three after the event and have a chance for more personal conversation!

Best,
Chris

Give him my love if you get the chance. I've not seen him for ages.

Done! He says he feels like he's been a poor friend and will try to get more in touch.

Oh no! It's only in the past month I've started catching up with old friends after four years of isolation. Today I had lunch with one of my closest friends. It's four years since I saw her, six years since I saw her 9yr old daughter and I have *never* seen her son.

Good for you, reaching out to old friends again. It's amazing seeing young kids suddenly metamorphize from so young to nearly adult!

You left too early! Missed out on the pogo-stick and cupcakes. Long story. Much fun!
