Thanks for posting the links to those essays.I don't think anyone needs to feel painted into a corner by authenticity today. I was talking about how people felt 100 years ago in the shadow of capital R Romantic notions. A theme of both of those essays was that a common element of Modernism was that the technique becomes the subject. My point is that is easier to understand if you see that doing art about doing art is a way of solving the contradiction inherent in the...
Engineering graduates make 40-50% premiums over other college graduates (who themselves are a little more than 30% of the population). Premium might not be rising, but its obvious that if we can easily get workers who generate that sort of extra income, we should.

Well, there must be some sense in which Modernisms develop in parallel or else why categorize them into a single ism. And while there doesn't seem any reason that we should think of the arts as running in some parallel form to science, it does seem to be an element of "Modernist" art that it does. That art is progressive, with more superior and knowing art, superseding passe art and that art follows logically from underlying principles.Well, I am sure that I am not the...
To my ignorant eyes, it seems that the defining characteristic of modernism is that progress can only be made by discovering, scientifically, the governing first principles of the subject and following the logical implications of these principles. This seems to follow both science, but also Marx in economics and Freud in psychology. Modern architecture and design seemed to discover these first principles early in the 20th century and that field seemed to develop a...

NBA needs shorter seasons.
Awesome. ThanksI thought they did have a shot clock. You see those old films of Bob Cousy and they look like the frames are running through the projector too fast, but apparently they were really running around like that.
Probably this was the early 1960's, though it seems like defensive stats from the era might be harder to find. This compares a lot of the great championship teamshttp://www.nba.com/playoffs2004/challenge_celtics1960.html. The 1960 Celtics for instance scored 125 ppg, but it doesn't say how many they gave up.
