I was in Leicester today at the UKLA research meeting. I now regret going by car – it took me three hours to get home! London’s quicker. Listening to the car radio I learnt that Jean Baudrillard died in Paris on Wednesday. Here’s an appreciation. I also found out about the latest wiki scandal – a Wikipedia administrator has been posing as a tenured religion professor. He’s a 24-year old with no qualifications. Is that bad? Unreal, Baudrillard would say, I expect. Tomorrow I’m teaching - it’s blogs and wikis, so I really thought I ought to get something down today!
