This is very cool stuff. Are you going to publish this?
I ask, because I'd like to put it on my blog. If you're going to publish, I'll wait. But if you don't mind, I can write something up or if you want to write something up, I'd like to post this.
It's directly relevant to a discussion I'm having with another Meyer worshiper who doesn't realize that mutations can cause huge changes in populations.
The linked paper is as published as that will be getting.
Elsberry, W.R.; Grabowski, L.M.; Ofria, C.; Pennock, R.T. 2009. Cockroaches, drunkards, and climbers: Modeling the evolution of simple movement strategies using digital organisms. SSCI: IEEE Symposium on Artificial Life, 2009: 92--99.
So anything out of that is fair game for comment.
There's a section on "future work" in the paper. What I'm hoping to do next is to move on to building environments with both a positive and a negative "resource", so that the organisms will need to evolve both appetitive and aversive responses. If that comes together quickly enough, a colleague has pointed out a conference submission deadline at the end of March.
