Here I am at the Oxford meeting, which is one of the most exciting and interesting I have attended. Major names are here from all kinds of disciplinary perspectives, philosophy, sociology, natural science. The sun is even shining here! The level of the debate is high and many issues exciting. I have already had conversations with Joel Garreu, James Hughes, Julian Savulescu, William Sims Bainbridge, Lee Silver and a representative from the House of Commons Select Committee for Science and Technology. My session on 'rethinking enhancement in sport' was lively and I got the felt that these issues are just beginning for us all. There's a great deal left to be done.

I even signed a couple of copies of 'Genetically Modified Athletes', which happened to be in the Blackwell book stand!

Mary Douglas is now up to speak!
