No Evolutions for Corporations or Nanodevices

Another great post about evolutionary biology, Eliezer.

I'd be interested in seeing your opinion regarding Gould's concept of contingency in evolutionary outcomes (he talks about it a lot when discussing the Cambrian explosion).

(Disclaimer: I don't particularly favor Gould or his views, and I mostly agree with your criticism of him, but I'm genuinely curious to know whether there's merit to this idea.)

Or maybe I should wait for this month's open thread to make this suggestion. I apologize in advance if that's the case.
