Brevity

smithers:

[Aside] A thesis: It takes greater discipline of thought to write theory with brevity, as with, for example, the blog post, aphorism or status update. With these constraints in place, the act of communicating itself is more presently at stake. The downfall of the traditional academy will be bound in no small part with its failure to respond adequately to this emerging reality of the electric age, its failure to understand the very act of communicating itself. Crepuscular dawn.

(Having a Daft Punk kind of afternoon. See "Short Circuit" from the Discovery album for further information.)
