So maybe…

August 21, 2009

…this blog isn’t quite as moribund as I thought it would be, but there’s an article of interest to college students (and instructors) about a textbook service that offers free to lower-cost textbooks, depending on whether the students view the text online, buy a PDF or get printed copy.

This, I think, is the way textbooks should be offered. God knows tuition costs are high enough. Adding needless textbooks on top of that cost is ridiculous.

In other news The Ann Arbor News stopped publication in July, but it appears that The Saline Reporter is one of the prime beneficiaries. The Saline Reporter has been a weekly rag since long before I was born, and it looked like a weekly rag. These days? Not so much. Aside from hiring former A2 News reporters, the paper itself is starting to take on the look and feel of a daily, and I don’t think it will be long before the paper starts coming out twice a week.

I’m happy about this, by the way, because Washtenaw county needs a daily, and it’s possible the SR will ultimately take over the role that the A2 News abdicated.

Okay. Off to do more work on cleaning up my Web site; sweet dreams when you get there.
