Let's start moving this stuff to !

Some people are itching to place essay-type material on Wikipedia. Who are we to stop them? So upload your essays here. But please, follow the Wikipedia commentary area rule: Name your essay either as a subpage of the commentary page, /Like this, or as a subpage of your personal home page, Larry Sanger/Like this. Expect essays named according to any other convention to be renamed appropriately. We simply must not run the risk of people mistaking commentary for encyclopedia content.

Larry Sanger/Columns (Larry Sanger and people who respond to him)
Larrys Text -- a lot of this is in lecture format, and some of it contains my own personal opinions. I fully intend to wikify it and render it encyclopedic; I've been doing so slowly but steadily. When it's fully wiki'ed, I'll remove it from this commentary page, because it will no longer contain any commentary per se.  :-) As you can see, I am the first one to break my own rule (the item isn't filed under my name or the commentary page) but that's only because I do fully intend to make it into encyclopedia articles, and am in the process of doing so. --Larry Sanger
