A horrifying thought

In days of old, I would’ve shared this post and it would be on display in the sidebar. But, alas, in their infinite wisdom Google has removed this technology option. If any link warrants a post of its own, though, it is a new audio interview with William Gass. So, here you go.

A favorite line:

I used to love teaching philosophy for may reasons. One of them being that I could feel fairly confident that no student listening to me would ever believe what I say. Imagine being believed. It is a horrifying thought.

Oh, and yes, the Omensetter’s Luck reading group WILL take place. I will be contacting all those who expressed interest this week over the holiday, and we’ll get down to business very soon. It’s not been forgotten.

    I’ve not yet tried the Chrome extension, but have the Firefox. I see the old Shared items tab, etc. How does sharing of new items work? — does one just go through the motions of sharing it also on G+?

  2. Brad Johnson Says:

    No, just tried and apparently not. Am I missing something?

    In Chrome, as you scroll past a post, it adds in the old “Share button” and clicking that will send it to the side bar, same as before the change.

    Thank You for bringing to my attention the podcast of the magnificent William Gass.

  5. Brad Johnson Says:

    Does not seem to work for me on either Firefox or Chrome. Perhaps I need to re-install when I’m less sleepy. Not sure what the problem is.

  6. Brad Johnson Says:

    Got it working in Chrome. Not in Firefox.

    In consultation with Brad, I have exchanged our defunct Google Share feeds for our Twitter feeds. Enjoy!

    Am I the only invalid alive who *still* cannot bloody get my share function to work from Google Reader to my blog?
