Shameless Self-promotion Sunday #15
Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 15 years ago, in 2008, on the World Wide Web.
It’s Sunday; you know the drill.
So, what did you all write about this week? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments.

I’ve been working on a new fiction project, but I did complete and disseminate the official New Jersey Alliance of the Libertarian Left introduction.

I didn’t do it but I just had to share the good news.

I’ve blogged about jury nullification in the past, this week I had a brief post, If you can think for yourself, you can’t serve on a jury.
Whew. I finally published an essay I’ve been working on for a long time, about the comparisons that can be made between the numerous choices and preferences that govern the online world of internet communities and the choices and preferences that would replace State fiat in a free society: A glimpse of anarchic rights, laws, and socioeconomic organization in online communities.
I’m not sure why it took me quite so long to write, other than the usual normal-life activities that divert me from my favorite activity of blogging. But my point is that I really, really want y’all’s additions and comments on this topic, because I’m sure I have presented a far from complete discourse on the parallels between the existing market for content, web space, freedom of speech, transparent arbitration policies, etc., and the voluntary societal structure we all advocate. It’s such an interesting topic and I tried to do it justice, and I certainly wrote a lot of words about it, but I want to know what else you would have said about it.

Another slow blogging week during my quasi-holiday in Paris. I did do a bit of research on behalf of a correspondent who wants to renounce her Canadian citizenship for reasons similar to those which motivate me. Turns out she can’t. Seems that some slaveowners collude to ensure that manumission is impossible.
Since you are the most philosophically-oriented blog I read, I wondered if I could ask you a question: can you recommend any philosophical defenses of religion (e.g., belief in God or the afterlife) that you find convincing?
