It’s very nice to see that philosopher and Deleuzian/Spinozist Jeffrey Bell has joined the blogosphere, with a set of very interesting posts up already. Graham Harman has been providing more useful writing tips, here and here. William Connolly has been posting to the impressive group blog The Contemporary Condition. Levi has been posting about flat ontology and flat ethics and about Whitehead’s relation to Levi’s onticology (with a bit of an exchange between myself and him in the comments). Andrew Ray has been posting some wonderful stuff on film/art and placescapes. Tim Morton and Ben Woodard are launching a very promising new journal called Thinking Nature.
Most of these things I’ve shared on my shared items page, visible here as the running list of items you see on the right-hand column of this blog’s main web page. You can subscribe to that from GoogleReader (or just choose to “follow me” there, which I suspect includes my occasional comments and “likes”).
I’ve been working on a new WordPress version of this blog, but haven’t quite gotten it ready. When it’s all set, I’ll give readers a chance to vote on whether to keep this one or opt for the new one (though you can sneak a glance at it here, and feel free to let me know if you think it’s worth the change or not).
In the meantime, I’ll be blogging less as I’m working hard on the last three chapters of Ecologies of the Moving Image, which I suspect will be one of the first books that could legitimately call itself “an ecophilosophy of the cinema.” The proximity of Caspian Lake in Greensboro, Vermont (longtime summer home of Wallace Stegner), is helping with the writing. Perhaps I’ll post a photo at some point.
