Let me remind you, once again — as if you can’t see the advertising on the side panel — of the Eschaton 2012 Conference coming up in Ottawa at the end of November. I do not hold out my own appearance there as a carrot, but there are quite enough real carrots dangling on sticks to prod you on to join us, including PZ Myers, Ophelia Benson, Udo Schuklenk, and more. Besides, if you have been following the conversations on choiceindying.com, I’d be really privileged to meet you if you can make it. So, if you have the time, inclination and the wherewithal to come, I personally would be thrilled to see you there. So, give it a though, will you? Come along and celebrate the end times — and make it a new beginning!
