My recommendation today is that you watch this Wallace Shawn interview of Noam Chomsky at the New York Public Library – “My Dinner with Noam” was the comment of some internet wags. Chomsky is always interesting and important to listen to – Wally Shawn gives the interview some sparkle. If you don’t know Chomsky, you owe it to yourself to watch. The interview doesn’t start until about 16 minutes in. Lasts a little over an hour. Just forward the play to get started. If you know Chomsky, it’s still good. Sobering discussion of the doomsday clock though. Is a species’ chance for survival inverse to intelligence? Does that mean, with the election of Trump, that we are Okay?
