SERIALST Commercial Digest pilot project: Since June 2008, the SERIALST
moderators have been experimenting with compiling and distributing a
Commercial Digest once a week, on Friday afternoons, with messages
containing informational content from commercial bodies (i.e.,
publishers, vendors, agents, etc.). The moderators review submitted
messages for informational content that may interest our subscribers. We
reserve the right to reject messages that are purely for advertising or
product/service solicitation, with little or no informational content
beyond the solicitation, as well as other content that are not within
the scope and purpose guidelines of SERIALST

If you have thoughts or feedback about the Commercial digest, or other
aspects of SERIALST, please let us hear from you. Contact information

2. Announcing ""
Dear all,
I recently finished my Ph.D at Oxford on the philosophy of perception.
With a team of people from Stanford and Cambridge, I've just launched a
website,, which does two things:

- It shows academics around the world structured in a 'tree' format,
displayed according to their departmental and institutional affiliations.

- It enables academics to see news on the latest research in their area
- the latest people, papers and talks.

We are hoping that will eventually list every academic in
the world -- Faculty Members, Post-Docs, Graduate Students, and
Independent Researchers. Academics can add their departments, and
themselves, to the tree by clicking on the boxes.

Academics are joining the tree rapidly. More than 25,000 academics have
added themselves in the last three months. Some professors on the site

- Richard Dawkins - - Stephen
Hawking - - Paul Krugman - - Noam Chomsky - - Steven Pinker - We're trying to spread the word
about as much as possible. It would be terrific if you
could visit the site, and add yourself to your department on the tree at If your university is not
there, you can add it. Independent researchers - if you are a researcher
that is not associated with a university, I encourage you to add
yourself to the "Independent Researchers" portion of the tree at

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

Many thanks,


Dr. Richard Price
