notes from the interblags

• via The Feminist Underground: A UC Irvine professor is throwing a fit over mandatory sexual harassment training. It’s rather hard to believe.

• Oregon State has joined iTunes University! I had students give a pretty good presentation on this arguing that OSU should start using iTunes U in my business writing class last year next year, arguing that OSU should get involved with iTunes U. I wonder if they were involved in this getting OSU on the iTunes boat at all (I somewhat doubt it, but I hope they were). I didn’t realize it until I just searched, but Penn State is on iTunes U as well.

• Stanley Fish discusses a new book on academic freedom. I generally agree with his (and the books’) take on the topic.

• via the Blogora, Texas A&M adviser to student conservative group resigns because he’s ashamed of the group’s tactics (especially after they publicly attacked four professors who signed a petition supporting William Ayers).

• New York Times: Blogging at a Snail’s Pace

• A Marriage Manifesto… of sorts: a young gay man decides he’s going to stop using marriage terms for married folks. Instead of “husband” and “wife,” he’s referring to people as “domestic partners” and the like. I kind of like this approach.
