Bentham’s philosophical remains

Back in the 90s, when I wanted to move my website off university servers, I brainstormed possible domain names. I settled on fecundity partly just because it sounds good, but also because I learned the word from reading Jeremy Bentham. A webcam pointed at Bentham’s dressed-up remains was a highlight of the internet back then, and the association amused me.

I recently learned that Bentham’s remains have been moved. His dressed up skeleton has its own LinkedIn profile, because it is important for everyone to have a LinkedIn profile.

Bentham’s desiccated head peers from inside a glass dome, like he’s the first explorer to die in a science fiction thriller.
