This post has no philosophical (or really mathematical) content – hopefully I’ll soon have a finished draft of the talk I gave last week to the Berkeley math grad students on forcing and the Continuum Hypothesis. It’s got no original material, but I think it should be a fairly accessible introduction (well, as accessible as it’s going to get), and I don’t know of any that exist elsewhere. If anyone else knows of one, let me know! I’ll put mine up soon once I’ve proofread it and such.
Also, I started using Google Analytics to check my viewing stats, and they’re finally available. I’m getting far more views than I expected – 51 on Monday, despite no new content in over a week! In addition to the unsurprising clusters in college towns, like 5 from Stanford, 4 in Ann Arbor, and 3 from Melbourne, there’s 3 from Iasi, Romania, and several from South America. I’m guessing the latter is because of a link from this blog by Juan de Mairena – unfortunately I don’t read enough Spanish to understand much of what’s going on there, or why he linked to all the logic blogs I know of, plus one in Spanish (which seems to have interesting liar- and Yablo-type paradoxes).
I suppose it might be a bit spooky that I can see how many visitors I get from various locations, and from which referrers, etc. But I think most bloggers have some way of checking this – I just hadn’t signed up for such a service until now, and I might be able to get a bit more info about readers because I have so many fewer than some of the bigger blogs.
Anyway, real content soon, I promise.
