About Rick

I remain mostly a bookworm. My current interests are in philosophy, logic, semiotics and singularity. In addition to The Phaneron, I maintain a homepage with references to my guitars, speaking engagements and publications.

  1. Dear Rick-

    We don’t know each other, but, a quick survey of your blog and website was truly impressive and exciting. The combination of quantum theory, semiotics, ontology, cognition and lambda-calculus in a set of tags cannot be beaten in my book. I am a recent graduate of Wesleyan University, with a degree in philosophy neuroscience, and I was the General Manager of ITS Helpdesk while I was there. From what I can tell, it looks like you’re into philosophy and technology too, so perhaps I’m not crazy in asking you for some advice about how to turn that set of interests into an IA job, which you seem to have quite a knowledge of (under-statement likely).

    So, if you happen to have any advice, I’d love to hear it. Or if advice is too dry, I could spice it up with some college nostalgia- When did you go to Wes? Did you have a class with Joe Rouse? (IF SO: How much does Joe Rouse rock?) What philosophy do you read/did you read?

    Thanks for the time, perhaps I’ll here from you soon.

    Best,
