    "Discombobulated". So many elements--disco, combo, bob ... and widespread confusion?

    Thanks, Mike. I have always loved these songs. Oh, we were so much younger then ....

    Agree with you about High Road. It is a heap of fun.

  • Capture: Old Delhi,

    Great images, Simon. I plan to seek out old cinemas in Portugal, Spain and Sri Lanka, when we travel there shortly.

    You lucky, lucky bastard! I too missed out on Nick Cave tickets, despite begging and pleading.

    But I do have tickets to Conor Oberst at the Powerstation next March--which will be a father and daughter outing as he is my daughter's favourite musician, and he is supported by The Felice Brothers, whom I dearly love,

  • Hard News: Park Life,

    [only partly tongue-in-cheek] My solution to the apparent shortage of urban building space is to turn all energy-greedy, limited access golf courses into new housing areas and public parks.

    There is also a PhD By Publication, which is another beast.

  • Speaker: Market failure in the research world,

    There is another entrant in the push to get published. It is the PhD With Publication. I am currently supervising one and although the guidelines recommend 3-4 published articles as the core of the thesis, my student has included seven. There are advantages; your work gets more widely noticed (as against your conventional thesis, which has an average readership of 4-5 people), and maybe it accelerates you along the job railroad ( pressing on the heels of working academics or those about to retire). But it also adds to the general climate of publishing-at-all-costs, which people have been discussing here.

    Springer are best avoided. A couple of years back I had to pay more than $100 to get a copy of a Springer-published, edited collection I had contributed to.
