Rabble Rouser

Props to fellow UCI anteater Peter Krapp for stirring up trouble digitally on his excellent Distraction Economy blog. Krapp's coverage of litigiousness toward the family of the late Jacques Derrida over the archival holdings of the deconstructionist philosopher's work helped spread the news to The Chronicle of Higher Education. Krapp lined out some of his stronger rhetoric against lawyers for UC, but edited in some interesting commentary about how archives necessarily create conflicts between stakeholders. Overall, it's a very readable academic blog. From a Virtulapolitik standpoint, I particularly enjoyed this story about a congressional aide attempting to hire hackers to change his GPA. I love stories about media illiteracy that involve policy-makers!
