welcome to philosophy gossip
I once enjoyed the Philosophy Job Market Blog, but these days the owners of that blog rarely post, can't be bothered to even update the comments for days on end, moderate the comments, and delete comments that complain about their practices or suggest alternate venues for discussion about the philosophical profession (and who knows what else). I would like this blog to become a new venue for gossip, complaining, ranting, or even helpful advice (though this should be kept to a minimum) about the philosophical profession in all its dubious glory. I promise not to moderate comments and to post new items at least once every few days. The main point of this blog, though, is not for you to read whatever pearls I have to dispense, but for there to be an open forum where philosophers and philosophers in training can talk about their profession.
