Time for empathy?

As I write, two days have passed since I woke to learn that the new US President-elect was Donald Trump. I’ve spent much of these two days reading articles on the web, trying to get a handle on what’s going on in the world, and in particular how to understand the results both in the […]

Eclipse pic

It’s far from perfect, but also the best shot of a solar eclipse I’ve ever managed, by far. Taken looking across the Firth of Forth from Leven, Fife, at 9.32 (according to the camera, which might not be accurate) this morning.

Scottish independence and me

To whom it may concern—probably nobody besides myself but having written about my previous position I should probably record this—I’ve changed my mind about the Scottish independence referendum. When I last wrote about this issue I was quite committed to abstention, or at least to not taking part in the arguments, and I was genuinely […]

Philosopher’s swan song, artist’s statement

This is about a real turning point: at the age of 60, I’ve finally decided what I want to do with my life. Better late than never, you might say. At school I had no idea what I should or might like to do after leaving. But here’s a thing: I clearly remember deciding, at […]

Better poem

I need to move more slowly, the previous version had no time to mature. (This paragraph is not part of the poem.) Light dawns         birdsong echoes         through an empty building

Published at last!

A few days ago I received this long awaited message: Your article “Mind, Matter, Meaning and Information” has now been published in tripleC volume 11 (1). You can download it under the following link: By sheer coincidence it was exactly a year ago today (December 16) that I submitted the article. But I’m not […]

New Business

I’m starting a new business! It’s called Giclée Print Stirling. If you’re interested take a look at the site. The biz itself won’t start operating much before the end of July, as there’s a lot of preparation to do. I’m going to run it in parallel with the computer repair business for the foreseeable future. […]

My talk at the DTMD workshop (see recent posts) is this afternoon, and I thought I’d make the abstract and slides available.

Dissertation comments

Throwing caution to the wind, I’ve decided to publish selected markers’ comments on the MSc dissertation. I’m striving for a degree of balance, here, but I’m not claiming to have achieved it. There were two markers, who wrote about 3.5 sides of A4 paper between them. (“Selected” in the first sentence applies to the comments, […]

In a complete turn-around from The Last Post (that’s what it’s called), I’m working on an abstract for The Difference that Makes a Difference conference. (I sometimes think that the more decisively I make up my mind about something, the better the reasons I’ll soon find for rethinking the decision.) Anyway, sliding back into academic […]
