CALL FOR INTERLOCUTORS: Google+ video chat on "Philosophy in the Age of Information"


CFI: Call for Interlocutors Philosophy in the Age of Information


I'm looking for eleven colleagues or so who might be interested in participating in an online video
chat about the impact of developing information and computing technologies (ICTs) on the profession
of philosophy.

Naturally, some knowledge of the profession, then and now, would be helpful.

The goal here is two fold: to better understand the ways the profession is changing and to see if 
Google+ video chat can be successfully used for academic use.

Please express your interest by commenting on this item, and I will make contact subsequently with 
a Doodle Poll to set up a time.

Google+ account required (I think).
