Speaking of Darwin Day, it's coming soon! Yep, February 12th is Darwin's 199th birthday. I plan to celebrate in two ways:
- I will be interviewed for a Natural History Museum Nature Live event called "Charles Darwin: the young explorer", which you can watch live online at 12:30PM Greenwich Mean Time on the day.
- I will also attend the now storied "Charles Darwin's Birthday Party" at aforementioned museum on 13th February, advert below. The topic is eerily newsworthy considering the latest brouhaha about hopeful monsters/saltation, punctuated equilibria and the like.
