We were actually talking to some TV people today, although mainly to
give them background for a possible future television series on the
future. But I think one could turn much of our academic life into a
reality soap. "Who wants to get funded? Watch 20 prospective projects
battle it out, trying to get the elusive funding through strange
proposal processes, group exercises and intrigue. Can the philosophers
ally with the computer scientists to oust the climate pact?" (no, I am
not making this up).
My only problem with "The Ivory Tower" is that it would be too close to
home... how many police can stand watching cop shows?
