Christopher D. Sessums is plugged into the internet, an edublogger. Don Tapscott is a writer of business books about the internet. Until Twitter, these two worlds never met. Now Tapscott has discovered the university. He tweets: "I'm writing a major article on the coming crisis of The University. Among other things the model of pedagogy is all wrong. Other sources?" Sessums, who (like the rest of us) has been involved up to his ears in this sort of issue for the last few years, wonders who Don Tapscott is and where he has learned about The University. Hilarity ensues. Tapscott will be recognized (in the publishing world) as The Authority who Uncovered the (coming) crisis in The University. Because that's how the system works.
