no worries... didn't take it as criticism.
It's all an experiment... we'll see how it goes.
Maybe the aim should be to produce a series of cross-linked pages in the style of wikipedia.
Seriously, that project successfully links a lot of information, much of which is accumulated from anonymous sources. I think many people would prefer to contribute to this anonymously, but of course, unlike wikipedia, contributors would have to be given permission by you.
The (above) menu could link directly into those pages.
I could even imagine a role for sceptical contributors, but they would have to make a serious case (including setting out some sort of coherent world view) - not just rely on rhetoric. In any case, if something inappropriate was added, it could always be removed.
I wonder if the software used by wiki is publicly available.
This is relevant in the broadest sense to the topic... and I think a lot of people will find it interesting. It's an interview with Ken Wilber on NPR on the topic of 'science and religion'. He specifically addresses reducing mind to brain at 25: 11.
thx. I think this is a few years old. and I don't think this could be easily re-purposed for Skeptiko.
think along the lines of research that needs some explain'n
Perhaps this is the kind of link you are looking for, Alex?

thx K... I really liked these posts... but I'm looking for more of a direct tie-in to consciousness science.
David, the reason why scientists avoid "the hard problem of consciousness" is because we are still too far away from understanding it. In the same way that we don´t know for certain how the "quantum collapse" occurs. Neuroscientists are happy finding more and more connections inside the brain, which they can prove with the traditional methods.
