I'm an academic (yay!) which is fun when you avoid the B.S. piled higher and deeper.
Some people embrace and promote the B.S. however. We need an opposing force to their style.
What I mean is that attitudes in academia are too often competitive and fear-based. Instead of
publish-or-perish - how negative that sounds -
why not a new mantra:
discover something useful/beautiful and share it.
