Hi all,

I=C2=92m a prize fellow in philosophy at All Souls College Oxford, where I
recently finished my D.Phil on the philosophy of perception.

I=C2=92ve just launched a website, www.academia.edu, which does two things:


-          It displays academics around the world in a =C2=91tree=C2=92 format,
according to what university/department they are affiliated with.

-          It enables an academic to have an easy-to-maintain academic
webpage. My webpage on Academia.edu is here:
http://oxford.academia.edu/RichardPrice


My hope for the site is that it will list every academic =C2=96 Faculty
members, Post-Docs, and Graduate Students - in the world, and display
where they are working. I also hope people will use the site to keep
track of what people in their field are working on.

I=C2=92m trying to spread the word about www.academia.edu, so, if you have a
minute, please visit the site, and add yourself to your department. (Or
add your department/university to the tree if it is not there already;
it is easy to add a university or department by clicking on the arrows).

And do spread the word to your friends and colleagues if you can.


Many thanks,

Richard
