This year we made a much more concerted effort to document the events of the 2010 Ancient Philosophy Society in pictures. Here you will find a set of pictures of the 2010 Ancient Philosophy Society held at Michigan State this year. Here is a slideshow of some of our pictures:
Thank you to everyone who made the 2010 APS conference possible.
As we prepare to meet again in Michigan for the 10th year, I want to celebrate a milestone for the APS Facebook page: we have reached and surpassed the 300 fans mark. If you have not already, I invite members to join our facebook page at:
Encourage your friends on Facebook to become fans, or to “like” our page.
I would also like to invite you to listen to Ryan Drake and I talk about the paper I will give on Saturday at the conference. The paper is on the Protagoras and Ryan joined me on episode 31 of the Digital Dialogue to discuss some of the issues I will raise in that paper. Thanks, Ryan, for a great conversation.
I thought I would give everyone a few updates on things related to our digital community at the Ancient Philosophy Society as we begin to turn our attention to the upcoming conference at Michigan State.
First, I am very pleased to see that we have, as of this writing, 292 fans on the Ancient Philosophy Society Facebook page. I encourage all readers of this blog to join us on Facebook where not only posts from this blog appear, but also comments and posts from others writing on our wall can be found. I would love to see a more dynamic conversation both here and there on the Facebook page.
In order to facilitate that, I would like to propose that we use the following twitter hash tag for the 2010 conference: #APS10. You can follow my tweets about the conference at: http://www.twitter.com/cplong and I invite other members who use twitter to comment below with your twitter name and to use the #APS10 hash tag when you tweet something related to this year’s conference.
Also, I hope people will take pictures of the activities around the APS conference this year and post them on the Facebook page as well. Those of you with Flickr accounts can also use the APS10 tag for your pictures if you post them so we can begin creating a collection of photos for the Society.
Finally, if there are members of the APS who would be interested in co-authoring this blog with me, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to see if we can generate some more content for this blog from members interested in posting things related to our work together on the ancient texts.
