A few weeks ago, after Mind Bubble’s Spring 2017 tutoring wrapped up, I turned my attention to summer workshop planning. I’d wanted to run a middle school philosophy workshop since our workshops program began, so I decided to run an epistemology workshop on 5/19 (this past weekend). The closest I’d ever come to teaching pre-college … More Mind Bubble’s Philosophy Workshop and Thoughts on Pre-College Philosophy
With less than 4 hours before 2018 begins, I thought I’d take a moment to think back (bloggishly) on the past year. Let’s get the requisite “2017 was, by and large, a year full of misery on both the national and international level” out of the way because there is some good to reflect on … More 2017 Year-End Wrap-up
November is upon us, which means that it’s time for Mind Bubble’s big annual fall fundraiser! It’s been a year since our first ever major fundraiser, which was a fantastic success, and Mind Bubble has been hard at work over the past year putting our donors’ money to good use. We now host three weekly … More Mind Bubble Fall 2017 Fundraiser
This weekend, Mind Bubble concluded its summer workshop season with “Adventures with Words”, a workshop where students played Bananagrams and used the results of their games to craft abstract poems. The workshop was run by the fantastic Theresa Davis, a local poet, and all of the students had a blast! Our other two summer workshops … More Mind Bubble Summer Workshop Season
Today my paper “Do Time-Asymmetric Laws call for Time-Asymmetric Spacetime Structure?” was published in the journal Disputatio. I’m extremely excited to announce this publication for two main reasons. The first is that this paper is one of my favorites. It points out a leap in logic that a lot of philosophers of physics seem happy to … More Time Asymmetries and Disputatio
I should have written this post over a month ago, but the last month (or several) have been pretty busy in my neck of the woods. The end of April saw the end of Mind Bubble’s Spring 2017 semester and first year in operation! By the end of the semester we were running three tutoring … More Mind Bubble Spring 2017 Wrap-up (1.5 months late)

Mind Bubble is following up its successful Fall 2016 fundraiser with something new and different for the spring: we’ll be hosting a Settlers of Catan tournament (with a twist) for folks in the metro Atlanta area. Settlers of Catan, for the uninitiated, is a popular board game created in Germany in 1995 where 3-4 players compete … More Mind Bubble Spring Fundraiser: Catan for Cheaters!
Things at Mind Bubble have been busy recently – so busy, in fact, that I haven’t had the chance to update my site with Mind Bubble news since 2016! Whoops! Tutoring resumed in late January 2017 after our winter break, and we added a new Sunday tutoring session staffed by community volunteers. So far, the … More Volunteer Tutors Needed!
