Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

Economists are often accused of paper titles that convey little to the uninitiated. I think this is true in some cases but not overall. Nevertheless, the accusation can be hurled at almost all fields.
For example, this paper is in the current issue of Convergence:
Designerly Readerly: Re-assessing Multimodal and New Media Rubrics for Use in Writing Studies
Does this title convey anything? "Designerly"? "Readerly"? "New Media Rubrics"? I think a title could have been something like "Well Designed versus Easily Read..." And yes, Virginia, that is an inequality sign in the title of a non-mathematical paper. I'm calling an aesthetic foul.
