Subject: Introduction

    Hi.  My name is Robert Guralnick, a first year graduate student
in Integrative Biology. Darwin-L's existence is quite serendipitous
for me personally.  I am starting my graduate career in a unique
position.  I majored as an undergraduate in Psychology with an
emphasis in Social Psychology.  I was interested in how group processes
change when events, both momentous and small happen.  However, I was
given the chance to pursue work as basically an "evolutionist" at
Berkeley, and jumped at the chance, because evolution to me is
something that exists outside the realm of any one discipline.  As you
can see, Darwin-L seems like a natural place to be spending some time
during the next phase of my life.
	I already recognize many people who I have met both in person
and on Internet and look forward to meeting all the rest of you.  I
guess I should close by saying that while we are all discussing
evolution, it will be great fun also watching how this discussion itself
"evolves".  As well, I will mention I am particularly interested in
"evolution" in artificial systems like programming, or, say in
cultural systems like "creativity", as well as in biological
