      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

OCON schedule for 2008 and 2009

8 posts in this topic

The 2008 Objectivist Summer Conference is going to be in Newport Beach, California (our back yard!), and is set to run from June 28 to July 6.

The 2009 Objectivist Summer Conference is going to be in Boston, Massachusetts, and will run from Muly 3 to July 11.

There will definitely be some competition for our summer conference $$'s in 2008. The Kelley group last met on the West Coast here in Orange in 2006, so I'm halfway expecting they will make 2008 happen somewhere further north, such as Seattle or Vancouver. Not to rule out San Francisco or San Diego, of course -- but I'd be very surprised if they came back to the L.A. area next year.

We'll see...

Roger;

I got the announcement too.

I think the fact that ARI can send information out almost a year before the event suggest some of the problems TOC has.

The attendance for their 2007 conference was over 500.

In my essay Beauty, Goodness, Life, I am comparing Rand’s esthetics to that of a Thomist, to those of Schopenhauer and Kant, and to those of philosophers today. This summer at OCON 2013, Robert Mayhew* is offering a course on Aristotle’s Poetics with an eye to Rand’s esthetics.*
