I think the one big idea that I articulated there that maybe hasn't been said often enough is that part of what New Liberal Arts is is a "syllabus for a university that has no physical space . . . snippets from an imaginary course catalog" -

- and that this university is a part of internet culture that sees the web and other digital media as a place for perpetual college -

- education, socialization, job training, acculturation -

- everything that college is -
