Video tapes can get expensive, especially if you like to keep your camcorder running. Before you know it, you’re out of tape. Instead of buying individual tapes from local retail outlets, I suggest buying several tapes at a time. Wennerlind, an associate professor of history at Barnard, sees parallels between then and now, chief among them how deeply credit is embedded in our culture. “Credit is a remarkable human accomplishment that sets us apart from prior ages,” he said at a recent discussion at Caf Columbia, an informal discussion series by University professors. “You can’t have a thriving, rapidly growing society without credit.”.
