I especially like "Auden’s contrast between mediocrity that gets things right and genius that is always wrong." :)
The word processor that most of the world uses every day, Microsoft Word, is a work of genius that’s almost always wrong as an instrument for writing prose.

How can I help you? :)
In a kind of digital version of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object, tenaciously dull videogame truthers have met their match in an inexhaustibly interested chat program coded 50 years ago.

Full/Associate Professor in HCI & INTERACTIVE DIGITAL MEDIA DESIGN

The Department of Communications and New Media Department (CNM) at the National University of Singapore seeks outstanding candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level whose research complements our strengths in Interactive Media Design.

CNM's Interactive Media Design is an interdisciplinary group of researchers who specialize in emergent issues at the intersections of theory, interactive art, design and HCI. Faculty normally teach two courses per semester and supervise honors and graduate research students. Compensation at NUS is highly competitive and includes eligibility for annual salary increments, performance bonuses, subsidized housing and other benefits, as well as generous research support.

We are seeking someone with expertise in one or more of the following areas: interaction design, critical media design, social media, and mediated communication in art, work and play. Other areas of interest include interactive storytelling with a variety of media including music, painting, typography, video, comics, characters, textiles, sculpture, heritage, exhibits, and installations. We encourage applications from candidates who combine interdisciplinary research and creative practice.

The successful candidate is expected to be an excellent researcher who contributes regularly to relevant top-tier conferences and journals; a teacher able to teach a mix of theory and studio/design modules for both undergraduate and graduate students, and be an effective supervisor of undergraduate and graduate research. The successful candidate will teach core CNM media design courses as well as courses in his/her area of specialization. For a representative overview of relevant modules, see the "Interactive Media Design" offerings at http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/cnm/index.php/undergraduate/module-overview.

Candidates selected for interviews will be invited to do a teaching presentation (to representative undergraduate and graduate students) as well as a research presentation to the faculty. A PhD in a related field is required.

Applicants must submit:
1) Statements of research and teaching interests
2) A CV (including education, employment history, public and professional service, honors and awards, and a complete list of publications)
3) Original undergraduate and graduate transcripts
4) Names, affiliates and contact details of Six References
5) Copies of 3-5 articles or chapters representing best work, and if appropriate, portfolio of design/creative work

Application Deadline: We will begin evaluating candidates by August 1, 2014, but the position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. We strongly uphold the principle of non-discrimination and encourage every qualified individual to apply. Enquiries and applications should be sent to Gayathri Dorairaju, Department of Communications and New Media, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, National University of Singapore, Blk AS6, #03-41, 11 Computing Drive, Singapore, 117416. Tel: (65) 6516-4670. Applicants can email CNMCAREER@NUS.EDU.SG with their submissions.

It's an imaginary construct ... and it's tearing us apart!!!
In case you're having trouble remembering that most of America gains an extra hour at some point over the weekend, this dramatic trailer for Saving Daylight is the ultimate reminder.

The title overstates it, but otherwise very well said.
