Academic Nonsense

This blog received an invitation from a PhD student at the Institute for Creative Technologies as USC to participate in his study for his dissertation.  It's something about how people's opinions on blogs relate to society and...well, I forget, actually.  It was mercifully free of offputting jargon, but still quite full of the usual modern academic vagueness of thought.

I replied that this is exactly the sort of academic nonsense I want to discourage.  This will have no effect, of course.  Still, it was fun for a few moments.

Seems a bit of an odd fit for their research interests there.

Thanks for the link. Not understanding, though. Looks like a fit to me.
