Description

Are there things that shouldn’t be paired with money? James Stacey Taylor and I tackle controversial philosophical questions concerning adoption, organs, votes and even personal identity. We look at best and worst case scenarios and how allowing markets would compare to the world we have today. James is a philosopher, author and Associate Professor at the College of New Jersey.

  • On Facebook there are contrary statements concerning the use of names. While the VP of product claims that FB never requires a legal government sanctioned name, the service in practice demands exactly that. At the same time they claim that they want to have the name you go by… So what is in a name? Is the nickname that most people know you by your real name? Do you have more than one name? Must your name be sanctioned by some formal body, like the state? What are the per se traits of names? I’ve my own thoughts, many taken or at least inspired by other philosophers, but I would be interested in what everyone else thinks.

  • http://www.ination.io/ is raising seed capital. What do you guys think about replacing the state’s function of storing legal documents? I assume they mean property registration. Unlike some prominent anarchists, I am in favor of this. Real property such as land titles should be on a blockchain. Thoughts? “Founded in February 2015 by David Mondrus (CEO) and Nathan Wosnack (CCO), iNation is one of the world’s first secure, distributed, and cryptographically verifiable store of legal documents. iNation is one of the first companies to address the coming unbundling of the government services market. More information about the platform, its products/services will be available soon.”
