  1. In order to vote fairly, and I try always to be fair, I would have to read the 51 entries that are not by you and then go back and read the 12 entries that are by you and then re-read all the ones that inpressed me the first time followed by re-reading those that continued to please the second time round and then…

    Forgetit! I’m not voting!

  2. Don’t be such a wimp, Thorny! I’ll vote for a random one by Wilkins, just on principle.

  3. I am convinced that #32 (the one about regions of spacetime) is meaningless nonsense. Hasn’t the blogger studied his Ly Tin Wheedle? All places are one place, and that place is very large. End of discussion.

  4. jeb

    I just played to my own bias (perhaps my two week crash course reading up on the history of science at the national library is having an influence)and picked the one most usefull to me.

    As transfinite arithmetic does not score high in my list of things to do went for the Doctrine of Double Truth instead.

  5. I looked through all the articles yesterday, and made a shortlist of those that I considered worth another look when my brain was fresh. This morning I’ve taken that second look, and come to the conclusion that out of those articles which I have not read before, there is not a single one that makes me feel enriched to have read it. Not a single one that I could recommend to others. At best, some articles are interesting in their incidental observations but not in their conclusions.

    Those that I have read before are those by Wilkins, and the one by Zompist (Mark Rosenfelder). But I thought the articles were supposed to have been written in the last year? The one by Zompist is old, as in really old, as in I’m sure it was published on his website in the nineties.

    Both Wilkins and Zompist belong to the set of people whose online writings (such as blogs) I read regularly.
