Today has been an exciting day for me! First of all, although Steven Pinker had to decline my invitation to speak at UM (during the Neuroscience Spring Symposium), he did agree to do an interview here on Retrospectacle. So, similar to the Q’s and A’s I posted for review for Irene Pepperberg, I will post some for Pinker in the next few days to get feedback.
And speaking of Dr. Pepperberg, guess who WILL be speaking at the Spring Symposium? That’s right, my favorite parrot researcher, Irene herself! I can’t wait to meet her and (hopefully) Alex.
As for the interview with Dr. Pepperberg, it might be a bit delayed due to Irene breaking her finger, making typing difficult. So our interview will be conducted over the phone, when she feels up to it.
Stay tuned for famous people galore!
