Parents Using Facebook to Follow Students’ Lives

I was in Redifer last night, standing in line at In a Pickle. Two sorority girls (as evidenced by the Greek letters on their t-shirts) were discussing a recent tussle between one of them and another sister. As we neared the ordering counter, the girl who was having the problem got a phone call from her mom. She then proceeded to walk her mom through the tussle using Facebook– apparently the entire story could be told through wall-to-wall’s and video comments.

This video highlights the same phenomena. The kicker: it’s from the Onion News Network. Sometimes satire is just a little too real.

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.
