Some FormSpring Questions and Answers on my plans:
when/are you planning to teach philosophy at a university? Where? Etc.
Right now, I don’t imagine that I’ll ever return to academia… but maybe I’ll change my mind in 15 years or so.
Have you set your five-year goals that you mentioned back in January was on your to-do list? If you have, would you be willing to share them? If you haven’t, why?
I haven’t done it yet. I’m still struggling to make up for time lost while I was a half-corpse due to hypothyroidism. Plus, I’m seriously rethinking the best means to achieve my ends career-wise. [That's a bit outdated, but I've still not done my five year plan. My projects are so experimental right now that I've got trouble imagining even where I could be. Still, I think I should do it.]
However, I did set my major goals for 2010, and I’ve set up OmniFocus with three to five goals for each day, week, and month too. That’s been super-helpful in keeping me on-track. [These days, I'm using Teux Deux to track my major daily goals. That works better than the kludge I set up in OmniFocus. My full range of task planning and tracking still happens in OmniFocus though.]
My worst fear in the whole world is that your Atlas Shrugged podcasts will remain free … until the last one, for which you’ll charge $10,000 to download the MP3 … and I won’t be able to refuse, and I’ll lose my car and my house. Tell me it ain’t so!
It ain’t so! [... but I love the idea!]
When can we look forward to more Philofiles? I’m dying to know more arguments for why God doesn’t exist! (pun intended)
Thanks! Once I’m done the “Explore Atlas Shrugged” podcasts. Those — plus some other projects — are just taking up too much of my time right now. I am eager to get back to PhiloFiles though!
Is your PhD dissertation available on-line yet for others to read? If so, where? If not, do you plan to make it available (and when)?
It’s not yet available online, but I will post it sometime this spring. [Uh, okay, sometime this fall!]
