U of Nike author Joshua Hunt to speak at U of O, Tu April 9th 5:30

For some reason I can’t find this on the Around the O calendar of upcoming events, but there are plenty of posters up around campus:

Josh Hunt, author of the University of Nike, will be speaking the evening of Tuesday, April 9 at 5:30 in 100 Willamette Hall. (map)

Come hear Joshua Hunt, author of the University of Nike – the dramatic exposé of UO’s relationship with Nike, and what it means for the future of our public institutions and society.

Josh Hunt: “I thought I was writing a book about what has gone on at the University of Oregon in the past two and a half decades. It turned out I was writing a book about a phenomenon that’s taking place now at a number of public universities across the country.”

      Sorry, but I’m guessing that his ankle bracelet sends an alert if he leaves Jersey, or wherever he was indicted.

        Snarky comments may be cute to some, however, they substantially negate the important points presented in this blog. You can’t be taken seriously when you repeatedly act like an adolescent. The old adage – “Are you part of the solution or part of the problem?” – seems particularly relevant here.

          Ah, come on, the blog is him, it is his creation. At least he is not anonymous, like most of the rest of us. We are each free to do our own blog. I kinda like the sometimes weird stuff he says, even though I don’t buy into all of his obsessions.

          He’s a character, that’s why we’re here, let’s enjoy it, I say!

          Now, if Jim Bean or Mike Gottfredson is not so fond of him, that I can understand.
