Something completely different: how new media is affecting academics . . .

. . . and thereby how academics with the new media may be affecting the world.

This is Charli Carpenter's video presentation for the International Relations Association conference, and it is well worth the nine minutes you would have to invest in it.

Aside from being fascinating in its own right, the comments about flattening the hierarchy of information and blurring the boundaries between the personal, the professional, and the political, are insights that are keenly relevant to the current Delaware political process.

A note:  bear with it--the soundtrack is sometimes not as good as it should be.
