Penn State Boinged by Blog

boing_boing_logoIn the last week, two Penn State people have been mentioned on Boing-Boing, one of the most popular blogs on the Internet.

The first was Dean Christian Brady of the Schreyer Honors College. He was included in an excerpt of a Twitter-sourced interview danah boyd did about how teens use the internet.

@shcdean: What future do they see for FB or Twitter.

They don’t use Twitter. When asked, teens always say that they’ll use their preferred social network site (or social media service) FOREVER as a sign of their passion for it now. If they expect that they’ll “grow out of it”, it’s a sign that the service is waning among that group at this very moment. So they’re not a good predictor of their own future usage.

The second person mentioned was editor-in-chief emeritus of The Daily Collegian, Terry Casey. The Boing-Boing post quoted a Chronicle of Higher Education article about Casey’s denial of a request from a former columnist to take down some content she had written.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
