Dear FUNKfolk,

I am taking the liberty to attach a link sent by a friend. There are 
several enjoyable short-chunk video talks in there, most enlightening of 
them by the great evolutionary biologist John Maynard Smith. For those 
of you interested in evolution, cognitive science, evolutionary 
psychology or its predecessor socio-biology (not to mention just plain 
science), there is a chance you might actually enjoy it. What he has to 
say about the evolution of language is not exactly his forte. But the 
rest is first rate, and even his pianissimo is challenging.

Cheers,  TG
