CWH-Ad-Philosophy-300

My online, interactive philosophy classes held over video-conferencing (Google Hangout) are back! And I am very excited to have students participating in four sections already! We are already having incredible philosophical conversations that I feel are in many ways as clarifying and searching for me as for them. I have left each class session with a deeper [Read More...]

Camels With Hammers Update, February 2014

Just a house cleaning post. The long and the short of it is simple. I’m freeing myself of the expectation I’m going to aggregate lots of other internet content.

Instead, I’m going to focus on just one substantive CWH post a day, on a designated weekly topic for each day of the week so that I give myself structure and don’t paralyze from too many choices.

Then I’ll spend the rest of my time on all my other projects and research.

No one was coming to CWH for news. You have Friendly Atheist for that. I’m going to focus on quality over quantity and shipping out any extra writing I do to other outlets besides CWH. [Read more...]

A Short Post About My Long Posts For Short Attention Span Readers

A lot of my posts are long, so I know there are some out there who don’t read the whole posts, either ending early or skimming, or who skip them altogether. I just want to write a (relatively) short post to explain that I totally get that and explain my thinking on the matter. For [Read More...]

How Facebook’s Keeping You From What You Like

The tl;dr of the video and post below is simple. If you want to support and see all the content from your favorite websites and blogs (and I’m hoping that includes Camels With Hammers), you have to use an RSS or make stopping by directly part of your daily routine rather than passively wait for sites like Facebook to show you when there are updates.

I’ve been informed that if you go to the pages you want updates from there is a way to select to get notifications. I am told if you do this, you will get the same sorts of regular and automatic notifications as though you had subscribed to a thread. So please do that for your favorite Facebook pages if you want to still be updated through Facebook. But still that won’t always work when there are many updates to keep up with so remember still to actively visit sites.

This is an excellent video explaining how and why Facebook is now making it so that you won’t see in your feed the content from a lot of pages you liked. [Read more...]
