Back in 2010, while I was writing and posting my serial Autobiography, I created a second blog on which, over a period of several months, I wrote and posted a short book called FORMAL METHODS IN POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY. It was a reasonably chewy technical book with proofs of a variety of important theorems [not original with me, of course!], including Kenneth Arrow's famous General Possibility Theorem for which he won the Nobel Prize. The little book included my animadversions against the much misunderstood Prisoner's Dilemma, a summary of my formal critique of Rawls' theory, and a good deal else.
Google tells me that in the last five years, there have been a total of 42,129 visits to the Formal Methods blog, which is not bad when you consider the subject matter. From time to time I check it, and it still gets ten, fifteen, twenty, even twenty-five hits a day. I figure out there in the world are a couple of professors who send their students to it for some quick background on technical stuff.
Until yesterday. Yesterday there were 228 visits to that five year old series of mathematical posts!
What on earth is going on? Is there some Bulgarian mathematical version of REDDIT that gave me a shout out? If anyone can enlighten me, I woud appreciate it. Who knows? In the immortal words of Mel Brooks, I may be "world famous in Poland."
