Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • Blogging from 30000 feet

    As I’m writing this, I am at 30.000 feet, somewhere between Chicago and San Francisco. Up until recently, airplanes were one of the last places where you could spend some time being entirely disconnected from the outside world.

  • De Tijd, voor halve kennis van zaken

Godaddy (and Dotster) seem to be like the big losers of this landrush day. At Namepros.com people are complaining almost none of the […]
