Why the Future of College isn’t on Campus | Brazen Life
Short post that will be good to critique in A&E. Lovely little half-truths, gross generalizations, even some bullet-proofing of arguments - all make it attractive to buy into, but weak and in the end, nothing new. Can also come at this from a distortion of ethos: apparent practical wisdom that is built of unquestioned aphorisms and placebos. Can see it by asking if the ethos is open to an alternative. Mis-leading title: this is back focused, not future. Nothing new here. Summed up in: Yes, it's apparent in your writing that you learned very little in college.

Naked CIO: Apple's iPad - why it's iBad for business IT | Page 2 | CIO Insights | silicon.com
Businesses stay clear of ipad. Why? "All they care about is selling volume to pimply-faced teenagers looking for the next big thing. It is not in their business model and so it can't be in ours." Talk about a specious argument. I say, Fine. Keep ipads out of business. we spotty-faced pros do just fine without your tribe.
