I just returned from the Rock Mountain Ethics Conference at the University of Colorado Boulder organized by Ben Hale and Alastair Norcross.  It was a great conference. My presentation was a version of A Guilt Trip: Expressivism, Moral Judgment, and Basic Emotions. My commentator Camil Golub gave me great feedback and lots to think about along with the fine folks at the conference. 

Most interestingly, Don Marquis in a session with Michael Tooley argued that his "future like ours" argument for the immorality of abortion was unsound. It is always cool to see philosophers who are willing to change their minds in light of a good objections.
