Making professional connections is rarely this easy. But today I found a like-minded someone, a professor at a good university, who understands the complications of the field, the issues with teaching it, and trying to develop the profession. It is gratifying, as two years ago, I'd all but given up hope on the academic community. The change is happening slowly, or maybe we're finding each other slowly -- the only speed academia seems to understand. But there are some real prospects, not just for the project we discussed, but another project we already have. And potential to develop new projects.
