A couple of years ago I had a post here on Ethics Etc (Folk Morality and Philosophical Ethics) reporting some data we had collected about folk views concerning the status of morality.  That research project eventually yielded a  co-authored paper in Mind & Language.

More recently (and more awesomely) the intrepid experimental filmmaker Ben Coonley put together a fantastic, short film based on that paper, starring Amanda Palmer:  Folk Moral Relativism in 3-D  (grab those red/blue 3-D glasses if you have them!)

As some of the readers of Ethics Etc may already be aware, this January I succeeded Thom Brooks as the Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Moral Philosophy. Having had a bit of time to settle into this new role, I thought I take an opportunity to thank Thom for his immense contribution to our field, to state my aims for the Journal, and to report on some of the things we have been doing at the Journal. A portion of the material below is drawn from my first editorial for the Journal, which you can read here.
