Professor Leiter has done a great service to the whole profession in using his blog as a posting board for those who are/will be/would be/will not be at the APA this year. So....
I hereby nominate Brian Leiter for the position of first president of a new national philosophical society-- The American Society for Philosophers (ASP).
ASP will be run almost entirely online, including a well-organized, sensibly programmed, free-access, searchable, and updatable "Philosophy Jobs" database. There will be one large national conference a year. All papers will be posted in advance, and sessions will consist of ten-minute presentations (no reading allowed) to be followed by 40-minutes of q&a from the audience. The meeting will be held in a geographically central location with predictably reasonable weather on Dec 27-30.
Or... if all of this seems too much to ask, at least let me propose a profession-wide toast to Brian Leiter. Cheers, bro!
