Also, from time to time I have written very quick and sketchy drafts on a variety of other subjects, including grounding and ontologies, species of shapes and how they naturally arise, cognitive science experiments that shouldn't be done but would be highly beneficial etc. (the "unethical experiment proposals" paper wasn't my personal choice - it was actually a requirement for everyone taking the CogSci core class at MIT BCS ;-) ). Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
