Today I have presented our book Semiotic agency: Science beyond mechanism (currently in review) along with co-author Alexei Sharov at the Biosemiotic Glade, an online research seminar series. This included a 30 minute presentation from Alexei followed by a 15 minute presentation by me, focused on phenomenal experience, subjectivity, and human agency in relation to ecological impact - and then some 75 minutes of discussion. Some 17 people attended.

The commentary will be published in Biosemiotics.
Total number of writing days so far this Spring is up to 28,5.
