I wish you'd ask the serious questions when you're not stoned, Dave.

If you're still interested in the morning, I'm afraid I can't be of much
help. He seems quite shy. KMO asked him a GREAT memetics question in the
large group at his Seattle talk (Tad was also present, and we three
fictional characters has a wonderful dinner afterwards at one of my
favorite haunts) -- a question DIRECTLY related to his new mission as
Oxford's Charles Simonyi professor of public understanding of science
(not to be confused with the Richard Brodie professor of the scientific
understanding of pubes) and he flubbed it remarkably.

So go, and be disillusioned. He can't bring forth juniper berries except
from a damn juniper bush.

Do you know what a "meme" is?
