MyLife: George Orwell, Charles Darwin and Carl Sagan Walk into a Bar

I’m honored to be profiled today on the Normblog (Norman Geras), who conducts a weekly profile feature on bloggers of note. Norman is Professor Emeritus of Government at the University of Manchester and a founder of the Euston Manifesto Group and one of the principal authors of the manifesto.

There you go: I’m notable. Mom, it’s official!

For those interested in the influences and philosophy of the Currents author, feel free to visit the Normblog profile of Jonathon Narvey. Here’s a taste of my survey:

Who are your intellectual heroes? George Orwell, Charles Darwin, Carl Sagan, Jared Diamond, to name a few.

What are you reading at the moment? The Islamist: Why I joined radical Islam in Britain, what I saw inside and why I left, by Ed Husain.

What is the best novel you’ve ever read? 1984. As relevant as ever.

    I’m pleased to note that I know even more about you than is revealed in your profile. I’m a fortunate guy in that respect.

    Maybe coffee in June? I’m available then for sure.
