It went moderately well, I thought, although a lot of the more vigorous and
inventive discussion between us guests was chopped out for lack of time.
Robert will be entertained to know that I described Matrioshka Brains with
lip-smacking relish, to the revulsion and distress of the token woman
humanist (the lovely Dr Gael Jennings). The on-line forum after (with
appearances by Miriam and Russell Blackford [in French disguise]) was what
I've come to expect: all manner of technoids sitting at their fucking
computers telling us how much Gaia loathes technology and how we should
give our all to the Third World, although I didn't see them rushing to the
second hand store to sell their filthy machines and mail the proceeds to
Medicine Without Frontiers. One `Diana' informed us that `WE ARE HUMAN...
WE DIE'. I provided suitable directions. This was uncouth of me, I know,
but one grows so weary of this drivel...

I believe the forum messages will be archived and available at some stage.
