Programming Notes

Hi. I thought I'd give readers a heads-up on a few things. Well, really one main thing and then some other things I tacked on at the end.

I'm thinking about a name change for the blog. I've explained the current name a couple times, but I'm seeing a constant presence of what I presume to be mostly one-time visitors who clearly are looking for a philosophy blog, as in Socrates and Leibniz and did the tree make a sound in the forest and whatever. While the misunderstanding is not major and the inevitable disappointment that these visitors feel is not really my problem, I'm thinking it would just be better if I gave this place a name that is more clear about the content. I have a few ideas, and once I settle on one it'll probably just happen.

I've grown attached to the current name after 6 1/2 years, but changing it makes sense. I may eventually export the whole blog to a new URL, but I wouldn't do that without a lot of advance notice. And I know that blogs change names without warning, but for those of you who've been reading for a while, especially if you have me bookmarked or listed in your own blog's sidebar, giving some warning seems like the courteous thing. Maybe this whole thing is minor or maybe it isn't, but I still want people to be able to find me and know that it's me.

That's really the major thing. Besides that, I've got some posts in the queue about cemeteries, where I am nowadays in the emerging/emergent conversation, and probably something about General Synod. for those.

And as always, thanks for reading.
