“The Blog that Ate a Presidency”

No, not that Presidency — a University Presidency. Inside Higher Ed has a story about a blog that helped bring down Uma G. Gupta, until recently the president of the State University of New York College of Technology at Alfred.

Personally, I’m not sure how significant or surprising it is to learn that an anonymous blog served as a major rallying point in taking down a highly unpopular and perhaps incompetent university administrator. But it’s interesting that some of the commentators over at Inside Higher Ed think it’s an awfully big deal.
