On to Oz

Today Berit and I enjoyed our first full day at Australian National University. We got a little work done in the morning, listened to Wlodek Robinowicz' very interesting talk, "Dutch Books Against Groups and Jury Voting", which as you might surmise was about exploitation strategies against rational subjects in betting and jury situations. Lessons were drawn about the limitations of betting interpretations of probability. Then we met more of the department and its visitors over the traditional afternoon tea on the outside balcony. The sounds of the local birds are pretty amazing. I expect soon to walk with my daughter to the nearby hills where the kangaroos are rumored to run rampant.
