So I recently wrote a blog post about how research universities are abusing their privileges on patenting publicly funded research. I would love to get feedback and yes criticism on this, as I continue to develop these ideas. Thanks everyone!

Hey Sahaj. My immediate feedback is that as soon as I start to read this (or your other posts), what strikes me is that it is written in a belligerent and inflammatory style. (In the first sentence, we have “plunder,” “racket,” and “stolen”).

While I think there are many criticisms to be made of universities, I tend not to believe that they are plain evil. So, right off this analysis strikes me as either shallow, or written deliberately to provoke and aggregate the reader. Either way, I'm not interested in reading further.

Sorry if that is harsh feedback, wanted to be blunt and candid.
