Short is not always sweet

There are some amazing things about Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Two things stick out most prominently:
  1. They give you coursepacks and articles - the school fronts the cost of each expensive HBR article!
  2. Most of the teachers prefer 'caselets' to cases, which I thought was GREAT. No more pages of pointless color, just keep it quick and dirty.
Except now that I read one of these 'caselets,' I realize you cannot fit any information onto 1 page. Which means that now I have to spend my time researching the issue in question to get the necessary info to understand the case. It would be shorter and less frustrating to read 15 pages of HBR drivel.
