I really must stop making suggestions if I’m not sure how serious I am. People take them seriously.
Today Theresa Knopp defends her PhD thesis. In Finland defences are public, so people go along to listen, and judge the performance of the examiner. I suggested (and this is the bit I’m not sure I was serious about) that someone could live-blog the defence. To my surprise this was taken seriously, and Cano volunteered to do it.
So, from about noon our time (that’s 10am GMT), Cano will (hopefully!) be live-blogging the defence at the EGRU blog. I might join in over here, I haven’t decided yet. I wonder if we can persuade him to live-blog the party afterwards.
And, for those of you who can’t wait, here’s a silly blog post about global warming. I don’t know who the writer is, he seems to be a student in my department. God stuff, anyway.
