    Couldn’t figure out how to get access to chat but enjoyed your discussion today. In particular, hearty applause for your insistence that evo-devo does not invalidate (and replace) the Modern Evolutionary Synthesis. Everybody seems to be in a hurry to replace the evolutionary synthesis, and replace it by something that focuses on their own work. The problem is that this amounts to telling people to toss out all the stuff they learned in high school about mutation, selection etc. Publicity, but at the cost of confusion.
