Honorary doctorates are awarded to recognize a person's significant contribution to a field without completing usual requirements (eg. PhD thesis). I wonder if more lab managers, lab/field assistants should be considered after years of research and contribution to published work?

One thing I wish academics talked about more openly: Prestigious institutions are conservative institutions. They may employ some radicals, but these institutions are not going to support anything that causes them to lose their power. They're firmly on the side of the status quo.
