For years, NPR has been a loyal friend to me each morning, keeping me informed as I begin my day. However, sometimes the transition towards my actual work is difficult. Take this morning, for example. This hour, the Diane Rehm show is discussing the effects of a declining government workforce, privatization, and contracting on the economy (here’s a link). I can’t stop listening. What I should be working on is my dissertation proposal, which is also about public-private partnerships and cultural heritage institutions, specifically archives.
Below I’ve inserted an image I am using to illustrate the concept of public-private partnerships. Basic, I know, but what do you think?
OK, that’s enough. The show is over, time to turn the radio off. Back to work.
