Upcoming Carnival

[Updated from 17/5: Hurry now!] There's another Philosophers' Carnival coming up Monday. Get your submissions in by the weekend!

Also, I'm a little concerned about the apparent lack of interest in the whole 'carnival of citizens' idea. Is there really no interest out there? (How could philosophically-inclined bloggers not be interested in reasoned public debate!?) Or would more of you get involved and help publicize it once it's actually up and running?

In other news, I think it's rather neat how the friendly version of my challenge to right-wingers was an "editor's choice" in the latest Carnival of the Capitalists!


  1. I'd be willing to host an edition, and to publicize it a bit as soon as things get more definitive. Even if it doesn't work out in the long run, there's no rule that says it wasn't worth it even if only a handful of editions come out.

  2. I'd put some effort into it of course.
    but still not sure where to start yet when it comes to writing contributions.

    I'm a little concerned to. I've sent emails and met with expressions of interest from:

    Mixing memory
    Adam Kotsko
    Amardeep Singh

    No one else has even replied, that might be because of a confusion of addresses but still... at this rate we will never get it running which is a shame because if carnivals like this became part of internet culture it could really make a difference. Am I not pretty enough? Don't I make them laugh. I think we should have at least fifteen participants. Has anyone replied to your queries yet? I think I'll ask the bloggers who expressed interest to advertise the carnival.

  4. The only reply was from Peter Levine, who commented in the other thread. I guess we need to get things "more definitive" (as Brandon says) before asking people to advertise it. We can always modify things later if someone new offers a helpful suggestion. Have you got a carnival homepage under way, or would you like me to help with setting that up?

  5. I'm inteersted in the idea behind the new carnival, but my concern is the apparent lack of success of similar projects. If anyone has perused the previously cited WikiReason you will understand exactly what I am refering to.

  6. I'd be happy to help out if I could, though I don't, at the moment, have plans for any posts that would seem to fit the entry guidelines.
