2009 in review
Here's the annual bullet-point summary of my blogging for 2009. The crude algorithm takes the first sentence from the first post of every month; cf. 2006, 2007, and 2008.
I. Via daring fireball and makkintosshu, I learned that the URL http://www.apple.com/hypercard now redirects to the Wikipedia entry for Hypercard.
II. Today I got the student comment forms from my teaching last Fall. Again I asked students about the textbook I wrote for intro logic.
III. Some people have suggested to me that I should try my hand at writing some newspaper op-ed pieces.
IV: A few weeks ago, I participated in a workshop on underdetermination at the Pittsburgh Center for Philosophy of Science.
V: I was at Cornell last weekend for the Berkeley Bonanza, organized by Andrew Chignell and Melissa Frankel.
VI: I uploaded the first new version of forall x in over a year.
VII: In these two related items, Wikipedian prose appears in print...
VIII: I have always thought that the Swampman thought experiment is analytic philosophy at its worst.
IX: When I have teach logic to one or two hundred students, the class is in one the university's lecture centers.
X: Thus concludes year four of the blog.
XI: Suppose I wake up one morning and find that I believe something (call it Q) that I had not believed before.
XII: Christy Mag Uidhir and I coauthored a paper on art concept pluralism.
Mostly teaching, philosophy conferences, and Wikipedia.
I managed to keep my resolution to have at least one post in every month, although September and November came down to the wire.
