It could always be worse...

For academics, there always has been the imperative to publish or perish. In Gorman's case, there's a new concern: publish and perish. Sean Gorman apparently wrote his dissertation on the full fiber optic cable network of the United States... and now people are concerned his work might provide al Qaeda with a neat little road map for destructive purposes. I am so glad my MA thesis is only about Jews and Christians in the thirteenth century... hopefully Leila's isn't any more dangerous to national security than mine... congrats Leila!
