Reactivating this blog and Why Digiturk is Evil

I live in Turkey, where I am university teacher in philosophy.  Digiturk, a satellite TV platform, has succeeded in blocking Blogger in Turkey, where I have been posting recently at Barry Stocker Blog, due to some bloggers posting links to online feeds for football matches to which Digiturk has the rights.  This is an absolutely deplorable situation, and while Digiturk can defend its rights, to be a party to such a draconian act of restriction to a major internet service is quite a disgrace.

I’ll be blogging here for the foreseeable future.  If the block on Blogger is not lifted soon, this may become my permanent blogging home.  Firm news when I’m clearer about the situation.  All posts from Barry Stocker Blog now imported below, maintaining continuity.
