Professor Joshua Cohen quoted in a story by The Brown Daily Herald about a new method of communication using a video camera and blogging as a means of conversing online:

"'This is a pretty cool thing that Bob Wright and company have developed,' Loury said. He said he got involved with the site through "pure chance" when his friend Joshua Cohen - a professor of philosophy, political science and law at Stanford and co-editor of the Boston Review - asked if he wanted to do it. Loury said he has had two conversations broadcast on the site so far, both with Cohen, and has more scheduled."

...

"We agree too much to call it debating," Cohen said. "It's not a five-minute ... bumper-sticker sort of conversation."
