A generous thought, indeed! How might such a commitment change the relationship between the university and the public good? https://twitter.com/gabrielledean/status/969222301735706625

Ah, this makes me sad, mostly because of the degree to which gnocchi speaks to the entirety of my Italian/Irishness. I love it when it’s great. It isn’t great all that often, and yet I am unable to stop trying.

I started reading it at the first of the year. A book a week. It’s astonishingly brilliant. Don’t miss the intro & translator’s note.

Replying to @cplong and @BreneBrown

Absolutely. Those habits of vulnerability are necessary to real scholarly curiosity and experimentation, and yet all of our assessment mechanisms, at both the individual and the institutional levels, militate toward competition.

I have heard it rumored that one can get ahold of an old version of the Kindle app. Not that I would do that. But someone who would do that would need to keep getting ahold of that old app because it will auto-update — but only once per session.
