[Updates: (1) Thus far, in addition to me and the Rochas, we also have Mark Silcox, Neal Hebert, J. Edward Hackett, Charles Pence, Tiffany Cvrkel, BP Morton, Debbie Goldgaber, Olufemi Taiwo, Duncan Richter, Stephen C. Finley, Tristan Haze and one or two more forthcoming authors that will be added here. (2) We've decided that the go date will be around May 13th., (3) our reason for being and general policies are up here.]
With the amount of work I'm putting into my book on Tristan Garcia and am about to undertake on the new edition of the Martin philosophy of language book with Heidi Savage and Mel Ebbers, blogging has clearly fallen by the way-side. So I'm going to make the hiatus official.
When I come back it will be via a return to group blogging (with Mona and James Rocha and hopefully some other people).
The reason I still believe in blogging is that it can still be a good antidote to problems that arise from the way that professional advancement forces the unit of philosophy to be the chapter, article, and presentation. IMHO, this is in general, a good thing. But I still think that philosophy, done properly, gives you all sorts of weird insights into everything under the sun, most of which aren't fit to be packaged into a journal article. Blogs give you a chance to try out these insights prior to the point of even thinking about whether you would compose a paper containing them. They also give you a chance to be a dilettante, in the more original, non-insulting sense of the term.
