  • : Les pensées - j'ose le mot- diverses d'un jeune scientifique ayant obtenu un poste académique à l'Université, après presque trois années en post-doctorat dont deux au fin fond du Massachusetts. Ca parle de science (un peu) mais surtout du "petit monde" de la science. Et aussi, entre autres, de bouffe, de littérature, de musique, d'actualité, etc. Et de ma vie, pas moins intéressante que celle d'un autre.

Pour reprendre en douceur après cette presque semaine de vacances, la leçon du jour: Ce n'est pas parce qu'on a obtenu un PhD qu'on ne peut pas être complètement crétin (pour ceux qui en douteraient).

Cette petite histoire date de la fin de l'année dernière. La victime n'a même pas l'excuse d'avoir 70 balais et d'être en conséquence peu au fait de l'outil internet.

"To old people who existed before Al Gore created the Internet: if you're going to sign up for social networking sites like Facebook, you better be damn well sure that you know what you're doing.

Apparently, Dartmouth Religion Professor Reiko Ohnuma never considered that her students might stumble across her Facebook page, which is not only littered with expletives, but gloating about her use of Wikipedia as lecture fodder. Some examples:
- "Reiko doesn't know how to explain what 'modernity' is & isn't entirely clear herself."
- "(to a facebook friend) 'I'm now going to shamelessly plagiarize your language.'"
- "Where is Wikipedia when you really need it? The Wikipedia article on modernity SUCKS."
- "Yeah, I saw that page already. Thank fucking God for the Internet."
- The next day:
 "Reiko faked it with aplomb."
- "
yeah, but i feel like such a fraud...do you think dartmouth parents would be upset about paying $40,000 a year for their children to go here if they knew that certain professors were looking up stuff on Wikipedia and asking for advice from their Facebook friends on the night before the lecture?"
- On co-professor Clarence Hardy: "Reiko is co-teaching this term with a black colleague...whose mind is no longer on the stupid class."
- On grading papers: "
Reiko has nothing interesting to say about these damn papers, but better think of something quick."
- On her course load: "
Reiko shouldn't be teaching Religion 1 nine years in a row, because it's getting pretty old at this point."
- On the religion department: "
some day, when i am chair, we're all going to JOG IN PLACE throughout the meeting. this should knock out at least half of the faculty within 10 minutes (especially the blowhards) & then the meeting can be ended in a timely manner." (emphasis ours)
- Lastly, with a bit of irony, she posts a Salon article about facebook: "Professionals over 30 have joined the networking site in droves, but with great convenience can come great embarrassment."
"

Je ne sais pas ce qu'elle est devenue, mais à mon avis, le "when I am chair", c'est pas pour demain...

Cette histoire a aussi eu sa part de publicité (méritée). Encore un bon vainqueur.http://valleywag.gawker.com/321802/bank-intern-busted-by-facebook
