I was asked two or three months ago to write an article about Darwin, evolution and computers for the schools science magazine Catalyst. Took a while to come out, but I've just been sent a copy. The style is deliberately aimed at our cynical teenage audience, hopefully some of them will find the ideas of interest; you can read it by clicking here.

Just got back from doing a debate at the London Science Fiction Festival. The theme was "Life, but not as we know it." I was on a panel with chemist George Attard and Rachel Armstrong. I showed a series of videos illustrating some of the ALife work we do in my group, including some nice models by my PhD students Udi Schlessinger (who's now completed his doctorate) and Erwan Le Martelot. Not a lot of new ground covered, but I guess the science was new to the science fiction fans. Quite nice talking in the posh Apollo Theatre, Regent St, though.
