Live Monthly Dialogues Suspended

Hello My Philosopher Friends,

I have good news, bad news, and good news.

First the good news, (well good for me anyway). As some of you know, I have been moonlighting evenings and weekends as a premed science tutor at the University. Well it seems someone must have said something nice about my tutoring because now I literally have every evening and every weekend totally booked for the foreseeable future. I'm not complaining because I need the income. My other business, IQ Imaging, has suffered recently for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the general economic down-turn nationwide.

So the bad news is that I have decided to suspend our Thinking Out Loud meetings until further notice. I have really enjoyed our philosophical conversations and I will miss them. However, when deciding between philosophy and making a living, I must choose the latter. It's not just about the one evening a month of lost revenues but also the hours I would also lose preparing the podcast after our meetings. It would simply cost me too much.

But the other good news is that the Citizen Philosopher web site has a well functioning forum up and running. Steve Stokes and I broke it in with gusto after our last conversation on "being perfect", with a little help from Jerry Huml as well. I encourage all of you to visit the forum and carry on the conversation. You can add your two cents to an existing conversation or start a new one. (Luke emailed me recently and brought up the question of "the extended mind". If anyone wants to discuss "what is the mind and where is it located", the forum would be a good place to do it.) So I hope you take advantage of the web site to stay in touch with each other and to stimulate each other's philosophical musings.

So ciao for now. Hope to see you online and looking forward to our real-time rendezvous next summer.
