One can fantasize at this point about a whole flood of lawsuits from the Ds arguing that all action on presidential orders \(Including the signing of bills\) must be held until it’s determined whether or not the president is a foreign agent, right? #please?

I went to grad school in NYC in the mid-90s. Every last one of us who wasn’t independently wealthy was working at least one outside job just to eat. +

Replying to @tressiemcphd

This is not a “I had it just as bad as you did!” It’s more “all those reforms of grad funding that were going to make it better for those after me — didn’t.”

In the last few weeks I read three books in a row that have profoundly affected the ways I look at my work: @cnewf’s The Great Mistake, @ayjay’s How to Think, and @tressiemcphd’s Lower Ed.

Fri Dec 22 13:44:56 +0000 2017

I'd like to look at as many experiments in that kind of institutional recentering as possible: how they're imagined, how they're structured, how they're received.

Thanks for these suggestions, Sherman!

Fri Dec 22 14:05:55 +0000 2017

Both? Probably? But mostly I need to look at some examples of real experimentation — the university stretching beyond itself, building bridges, becoming outwardly rather than inwardly focused.

Fri Dec 22 14:09:40 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

Just to clarify my thoughts here a bit: I’m hoping to examine experimental initiatives in which the university stretches beyond itself, builds bridges, becomes outwardly rather than inwardly focused.

Fri Dec 22 14:47:56 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

I have been biting my tongue, but can’t continue to do so. What those of you passing around that open letter about the MLA’s data sharing practices haven’t been told is that the org has informed the author repeatedly that it’s developing a new platform with an open API +

Fri Dec 22 15:03:24 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

that is designed support exactly the kind of research the author wants to do. That sort of development takes time, and the org has asked for \(and obviously not received\) his patience.

Fri Dec 22 15:04:31 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

There’s more to be said about valuing the work that a non-profit scholarly organization undertakes to support the profession and research within it appropriately, but I’m just going to leave it there.

Replying to @_akpiper, @amandafrench, @jasonrhody, @Ted_Underwood and @kbourrier

And scholarly orgs do have a responsibility to make data as open as they can while still making it possible to do the work. And producing something like the Bib requires a LOT of work.

Sat Dec 23 00:03:45 +0000 2017

Replying to @_akpiper, @amandafrench, @jasonrhody, @Ted_Underwood and @kbourrier

So the MLA, as my colleagues told you, is seeking a sustainable means of making the data open to researchers. But it’s an enormous, expensive project. And the org has a responsibility to the field as a whole to ensure that it, and the project, can survive.

Sat Dec 23 00:06:32 +0000 2017
