I find it so difficult to read academic/paragraphic writing on the internet these days. It's reached the stage where if I click on a link and get to a page which is just chock full of text - I click it away almost immediately - reading nothing.
I think it's a combination of having left uni (4 years now) and mostly reading design blogs. Designers don't do long words or paragraphs unbroken by images. That's not to say that it's less intelligent. It's just more concise. Everything makes sense at first read.
And I have Radiolab to teach me things.
