Worth Bookmarking

I periodically purge my browser's bookmarks of sites I never visit. At those times, I sometimes reconnect with a site I'd forgotten, or appreciate one I've found helpful or useful.

Today's featured site— a new find— is AskPhilosophers. It provides reader submitted questions with professional philosophers responding. I recognize a number of the names, and can extrapolate that the rest are fairly respectable. As you might expect for a site in English, the contributors are mostly American or British.

As a philosopher, I'm glad to see the responses written in fairly straightforward language. While not all the responses I've read have covered the depth to which I'd be satisfied, I think they are generally well-thought and sufficient for sparking further thinking. I hope to use some questions as inspiration for posts here on Meatiocrity.
