    It seems to me that the discussion so far has largely supported my
    "top-down=bad, bottom-up=good" rule of thumb for interdisciplinarity; that
    is, those administrators who facilitate and encourage the kind of ID that
    is generated by leading-edge scholarship and research fit into the
    bottom-up category. The administrators and granting-agency officials who
    design and impose their models of ID derived from their reading of the
    Zeitgeist or whatever are the ones whom I was trying to make a little more
    self-conscious and self-questioning.
