Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason.

"People who protest John Searle are just making him feel more important than he really is."
"So, what, people stand around with signs reading 'Computers Can Think'?"
"No, all the signs are in symbolic logic."
