- The Continuity Theory workgroup has opened a new website (www.continuitas.org), replacing the old one (that means I had some extra work updating the links in my posts!). There is also a new 'official' name for the theory: it's no longer the PCT (Paleolithic Continuity Theory), but the PCP (Paleolithic Continuity Paradigm). In the new web-site you can find information about the members of the workgroup (Mario Alinei, Xaverio Ballester, Francesco Benozzo, Marcel Otte, Henry Harpending, et al.), and the main bibliographic references, including some downloadable articles. The introduction (The Paleolithic Continuity Paradigm for the origins of Indo-European Languages. An introduction in progress), has been updated.
- The second issue of Liburna has been published (November 2009), with some interesting articles and a couple of contributions of my own: brief reviews of F. Benozzo's La Tradizzione Smarrita and G. Costa's La Sirena di Archimede.

- Probably, there'll be news about my doctorate studies soon.
I don't know if I'll write another post before the end of the year, so just in case: Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
