From DSC:

I can hear the more academically-minded folks out there saying, why in the world are you pulling an article from USA Today?  But I have it that that audience is a subset of the type of audience higher ed is supposed to be serving.

Along these lines, this Snapshot Dissertation article is a highly-refreshing approach! 

My respect for the more academically minded folks continues to decrease — folks like my alma mater who pride themselves on the growing number of people that they can reject each year; and folks who essentially talk amongst themselves but don’t really care about helping out/addressing the greater society at large.
