Can you guys imagine how inflated his ego is going to get? Being published with real writers??? :lol:

Are you sure we can have him on the podcasts anymore? :lol:

Thanks, guys. I thought about putting a plug here on the board - but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I figured plugging it on the site was egomaniacal enough. But I'd like to talk about it on a podcast, now that you mention it. But a few things:

1. It's an original piece

2. It's not about the Goblin, although Norman is discussed in it.

3. Being in a book with real writers is an ego-deflater, actually...

4. And that's one reason I got off track with the website...whatever free time I had was spent on that article...and then crap happened at work and I'm just now clawing my way back..

How is it a deflater? You're being put in a book with people who get paid to do this for a living!

Totally kick ass man! I'll definitely be getting a copy now. 8)

Well, it's a deflater because I see how much better they are than me, particularly how much more well read they are. For example, you won't see any references to "utilitarianism" in any of my articles. I don't even know what that means....

And thanks!

It's my own personal ethical code. :)

And our JR in a book?

Thanos, I agree with a lot of the ideas behind utilitarianism but in its purest form it has its share of problems. If utilitarianism is simply the belief that "that conduct should be directed toward promoting the greatest happiness of the greatest number of persons", then torturing a baby in a room full of people who like seeing babies get tortured enough so that the sum of their happiness is greater than the pain felt by the baby would increase total utility and therefore be a moral act under utilitarianism.

Sorry for going off topic for a second there.

MG, I'm really happy for you. I can't imagine how good it must feel to have your work published in such a cool-sounding book.

Who else is in the book? Just curious.

Agreed, except my u-tism includes well-being first, then pleasure/happiness as the second tier.

Well, you guys are going to love "The Perfectibility of Spider-Man" by Richard Hanley. That guy blows me away.

I'm hoping to spill a lot of the details on Brad's next podcast. That just seems like a really good place to do so. I think we should be doing it in the next week or so.

JR,
Did you see this review? It's not very in-depth in my opinion.

I sent you a PM with a more "detailed" response, but I'd be curious what other people think of the review. It just seems very - spiteful.
