Are we good?

Blogging economist Brad De Long observes that:

A good college--visible or invisible--is composed of people who (a) know stuff, and (b) think well. The best colleges are made up of people who know different stuff, who think well in different ways, and who--most important--understand that when they listen to people who know different stuff than they do and who think well in different ways than they do, they learn.

Substitute "music school" or "new music blog" for "college": maybe the new music blogs, taken in aggregate, aren't so bad after all.
