Are you planning on putting this, or any other future classes, up on iTunes U? That would make my day!

Hi Michael, there are some classes already on iTunes U--search for my name in the store. And this one should propagate there fairly shortly.

what you said about Socrates being a troll, thats what I've been doing for years now. Im bored of setting up a blog so I just test my critical thinking against those with an official 'mouth' (blog or newspaper column). In my country (Greece that is). Its so funny that you said this cause recently they implore me to start my own blog. I think they start getting afraid of me. If I open my blog, they will be left alone and in peace. You see, because most of them claim that their ideas are progressed or beneficial for the 'general public', and by saying so, they gain 'the general public's trust (and purchasing power, some of them sell certains things.. too except articles), I thought that, it is my duty to respond to what they say and not opoen my blog. I dont have na ideology to sell, leftist, liberalist etc.I dont have a cosmology. Some of them have tried to attack me by calling me with my real name and surname (which they found in facebook) and tried to hurt me. I now send comments that are merely philosophical to major Greek 'state' newspaper and they never publish them. I think the internet has evolved now into capitalistic whereas before it was anarchistic (the romantic era of the internet historians will say). But because they implore me to start my own blog if I really have 'something to say that is not just paranoia', I think they really are afraid of discussion int he first place. Which is infuriating me! My story:http://greek-elite-bullies.blogspot.com/2011/06/to-dan-open-letternarrative.html
