So, a question, or rather requirement, often thrown on me in college is to be more concise in my work; although I believe I have tackled this rather well. I was wondering, do you believe the length and scope of a topic need be discussed in a form that focuses on length, e.g. word count, page count, or do you think it is the matter that is important and connections that are formed within a topic paper, discussion, review, etc that make a paper worthwhile? I believe the latter to be true, especially in my work, and although grades really matter for shit, I often get, "A's," on my papers.
Why does this matter on this site? Well, the concept of a short, concise review has popped into my mind on several occasions. And this is not solely connected to reviews, I have voiced this about many of the scholarly works I have read on a multitude of topics.
Also, is this a product of my generation: the millennials? Or is this just the natural evolution of discussion and debate? I don't know. I believe it might be necessary, as technology and our connections to others becomes closer and closer. What do you think?
