Neat thought experiment on how augmented reality could develop in the not too distant future. (The ending is fun but fanciful).

Philosopher Harry Frankfurt on BS

Frankfurt's essay (published as a small booklet) on this topic is a must-read, particularly nowadays.

Podcast

A few weeks back Ted Meissner (a/k/a The Secular Buddhist) interviewed me for his podcast, topic being my recent paper at the JOCBS. It's up now at the website:

Was the Buddha an Anti-Realist?

Paper of mine out at the Journal of the Oxford Centre for Buddhist Studies. It's a bit of a foray into Buddhist philosophy of the sort I dabbled in on the side while in graduate school doing (more ordinary) analytic philosophy.

One should be able to download it through academia.edu HERE.

Guest Post

For all interested, I've a guest post over at my friend Justin Whitaker's blog American Buddhist Perspectives. It's called "Buddhist Ethics for an Age of Technological Change".

It's a bit on the long side.
