and of course Dave Chalmers was all about the Philosopher's Index.

The idea being to have an online database of all the work that had been Published in Philosophy.

Something something about how the research funding algorithms were working against Philosophy and the Arts because of the way that scientists typically worked with co and multi-authored papers and the way in which they have a lot of references (so that at the end of every sentence, just about, in the intro) they list all of the papers).

At one point I posted the reference chain letter on this site. Right? The ... reference each of these and add your name to the bottom. Don't break the chain of citation...


So, anyway, because Philosophers were single authoring roughly 5,000-7,000 word publications or single author books (rather than having a lab of, say, 10 people multi-authoring pretty much everything that came out of the lab... It looked like the Philosophy Post-docs publishing 1 or 2 articles per year were slacking compared to the Science Post-docs who would multi-author many more aritciles. especially or particularly stats guy who would do stats for everyone's paper in the school or whatever...

So teh Philosophers Index was supposed to be a way of getting higher Google hits or something that was going to cash out in (or in a case for) better funding for Arts. By having higher profile publication for Philosophy Papers since science papers were coming out online and Philosophy was behind expensive pay-wall.

Or similar. I don't really know or understand...

Algorithms for building a zombie army on facebook games.

and so on...
