Making significant progress on my LUCID project to make the teaching of critical thinking more effective and more fun. Twenty prototype decks are migrating into the PSU community, en route to commercial production later this year. Check it out! www.joshuafost.com/lucidcards and www.facebook.com/Lucidcards.
Come see me speak March 25-27 at the 2011 Northwest Regional Freethought Conference in Portland! I’ll be presenting twice: a keynote entitled “Living Without a Soul, Dying Without a God,” and then a dual-interview + audience Q&A with the inimitable P.Z. Myers, of Pharyngula fame.
My first app is in the App Store! Check it out.
Philanthropists are fine, I guess, if that’s the way you roll. But what we really need is more people leveraging their fortunes for the betterment of the non-human natural world. Needing a word to describe that activity, I suggest: philanimalism. (Sadly, I am merely a co-discoverer here. The word appears in Anthony Trollope’s 1877 book The American Senator.)
All aboard the non sequitur bus!
