  18. 18. To end...<br /> “academic productivity is about much more than finding ways to get your work done efficiently. It's also about being a productive member of a larger community of thinkers and researchers, all of whom benefit from the wider circulation of more ideas, from more people, in more participatory ways. Alternatively, you can ignore this advice, close the blinds and gaze lovingly at your peer-reviewed papers. All I would say is: remember Betamax.” http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/story.asp?sectioncode=26&storycode=408419&c=1<br />
