Great summary on the close-mindedness of academia.
No surprise schools rarely do anything innovated in science or technology outside of MIT, Stanford, and CalTech these days. Too many people with their heads up their asses like the author of this holier than thou --------.
Academia has self-selected the least ambitious and least efficient among us. They couldn't survive in the "real world" and had to stay in the bubble of comfort that academia is. This author is at the peak of Mt. Stupid on the Dunning-Kruger graph.
Imagine if Hawkings had told everyone to ---- off and learn the right "dialect of acamdemic physics" instead of writing his book in laymans' terms.
