Thanks, Bill! Pleased to meet you, Franklin.

Anytime, Jim. You will be pleased to hear that I just dusted off my copy of Hayek's Road to Serfdom. Interesting times ahead.

I just read that last month, and tonight I'm cracking his The Constitution of Liberty.

Thanks for sharing the links to those excellent blogs.

It seems professional philosophers are taking blogging activities seriously. For example, take a look at this blog entitled "Matters of Substance":

http://substantialmatters.blogspot.com/

Some of the contributors (many of them well-known philosophers) include:

Elizabeth Barnes
Karen Bennett
Ross Cameron
Gabriele Contessa
Kit Fine
Katherine Hawley
John Heil
Thomas Hofweber
Jonathan Jacobs
Dan Korman
Dan López de Sa
E.J. Lowe
Ned Markosian
Kris McDonald
Jennifer McKitrick
Stephen Mumford
L. A. Paul
Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra
Jonathan Schaffer
Robbie Williams
Jessica Wilson
Dean Zimmerman

We'll see in a next few years a new philosophical field called "philosophy of blogging"? Just kidding :)

Z-chick,

Thanks for the link. Actually, 'blogosophy' or 'philosoblogging' has been going on for quite a few years now. If memory serves, the first weblogs appeared around 1999 and it wasn't long before philosophers ventured out into the 'sphere. Ryan began posting in 2002, and my first efforts date back to 2003. I would reserve 'philosophy of blogging' as a name for the philosophical subdiscipline devoted to the philosophical problems -- if there are any -- that arise in connection with blogging.
