I Could Put Some Pink Floyd Lyrics Here, But I Won't

There was recently a brief discussion at the Open Anthropology blog concerning the commoditization of academic work, and its implications for the quality of higher education. One correlate of this restructuring of the academy, a shallowing of content in the work of both students and educators, is also implicit in this discussion at the Savage Minds blog regarding celebrity prof. Tony Blair's new course at Yale (and explicated further in the comments).

Thanks for the link Brian. I have been visiting over the past couple of days -- and it seems that I only found out recently that you had your own blog. I have added it to my list of links.
