If the form-filling that plagues academia is pointless, why do academics comply with it?

"Yet it does not account for the moralising and punitive manner in which bureaucratic demands are formulated. They are derived from private sector managerialism, yet while they have been largely flushed out of business itself, they are applied to academia in a correctional spirit, as if it is not behaving in a sufficiently businesslike manner."

Here is an WIRED article titled:"The Age of Drone Vandalism Begins With an Epic NYC Tag"

http://www.wired.com/2015/04/age-drone-vandalism-begins-epic-nyc-tag/

Is there a future for Drones as Culture Jamming/disruption technology? Seems so.

Description

I am a member of Memefest communication/art/theory Kolektiv, and founder, curator and editor of Memefest Festival of Socially Responsive Communication and Art. Iam also facilitator of Memefest online social network.

I enjoy working in many different media including visual and text.

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

I have been here from the very beginning. I am interested in communication/
design for social and environmental change.
I name such communication
socially responsive communication.

Broadly speaking iam interested in visual communication, photography, sociological aspects of communication, design and media.

Iam interested in institutionalised forms of communication like for example communication done by design/communication studios and advertising agencies as well as non institutionalised forms of communication like tactical media or broader aspects of media activism.

In a slightly more academic language:

I am interested in how critical social theory can illuminate the complex processes of production, distribution and reception of public (visual) communication in order to generate public communication as a responsible social, political, economic and cultural practice.

I am particularly interested in relations between concepts of response-ability and communication effectiveness, and the social construction of design and other forms of pubic communication as profession, practice and praxis within academia, the market environments and non-institutionalised communities.
