Then he gets all defensive and . . .March 19, 2009
I’m loving the scope and inclusivity of Edificial, even when in voice and attitude it hews closely to the conventions of other industry blogs. So I was delighted to read that Eva attended the very lively and eauful second installment of the D-Crit lecture series last night, with New York Times perfume critic Chandler Burr.
Then I got to these questions:
>>For one, how to teach a group of people how to do something that most of us have sort of learned in the trenches of doing?
If I may: that’s a really good question. I think the way to do it is to hire as instructors and advisers people who have also sort of learned it in the trenches, as with other relatively new disciplines just formalizing academically.
>>And for two, how could any of us uneducated old guard possibly survive the onslaught of more than the usual one-per-year newbies?
Don’t worry. We all have highly regarded and reader-bloated blogs (see the roll), so we’re all good over here. I pay myself per post with one of these.
You forgot the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth questions though. Sheesh.
PS Edificial next week’s lecture is with Laura Kurgan, you really should come out.
