How To Order Air Jordan Spizike Bordeaux

I spent some years at Newsweek and some more writing for TV. My journalism has appeared in The New Yorker, Time, Slate, The Boston Globe, Fast Company, Fortune Small Business, Washington Journalism Review,

I’ve been writing about popular culture for more than 20 years, and about technology for almost that long. I’ve been fascinated the last few years with the way the two have started to intertwine, so that’s what I’ll be looking at here: Technology,

An academic named Louis P. Masur has a piece on the making of Born To Run up on Slate right now, pegged, I suppose, to Bruce Springsteen’s 60th birthday. (Happy birthday, Boss.) Just curious: How do academics usually feel about cribbing wholesale from uncredited sources? Because much of the reportorial detail in Masur’s piece,

Born To Run has probably been discussed as much as any record in the rock and roll canon, and there are very few fresh observations about it left under the sun. But it’s shabby to knock off another guy’s work without even the bare courtesy of a credit. If Masur had done this in academia he’d get his knuckles rapped. It’s too bad Slate didn’t adhere to the same standards in this case.
