Taking a Brief Break

I wanted to let you know that I’m taking a brief break after posting so consistently recently. I should be posting something new either tomorrow or Monday.

Until then, enjoy this essay:

Vanishing Intellectual Diversity
By Michael Crichton, International Leadership Forum, Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

I’ll discuss it later. See you soon!

Dear Marla,
I know this comment is not directly connected to your post, but since you posted a essay by Mr. Crichton, I felt invited to ask you this: do you know what happened to the "Aliens cause global warming" essay at This essay, along with one dealing with complexity theory are no longer online. Any clues?
Thank you again,

The website did not give a reason why Michael Crichton’s speeches have been removed. There was a section titled “Speeches” there until very recently. I think I last saw them there in May.

Fortunately, thanks to a web archive website, the speeches can still be found. The links are on my message board in this thread:
