I really think the editorial board should consider a special issue on
Philosophies of Toast. I am happy to lead with an update to my talk on
Heidegger and Toasters (http://www.alisonpowell.ca/?p=687) but I imagine
others might want to write on "Toaster-oriented Ontologies". Obviously
that doesn't even touch the serious new directions posed by The Coming
Internet of Toasters.

Barry I don't usually go to Starbucks but I'm going to try to replicate
your findings at Yonge-Dundas since I'm in Toronto today.
