Virtual Standing Ovation

If you have a few minutes, check out "The Wunderkammer of Teaching" at Slaves of Academe. It's extraordinary, graceful, and true.

No insult intended, but...desirable writing styles must be very different in other academic disciplines. Of the adjectives I would have used for that post, "graceful" would not be in the top 100. (I confess I had a MEGO moment and bailed at the 10th paragraph.)

Come to think of it...that might make an interesting blog post/discussion. Are there certain writing styles that are confined to particular academic disciplines? Is this a good thing, or does it impair our ability to work cross-discipline (and talk to non-academics)?
