This is an important and promising development on a number of fronts, including overall tuition costs.

Lots of pushback in the comments section to +Jeffrey Selingo's latest article, as would be expected. But if he's right about some of these trends, which I suspect he is, then many higher ed institutions will have to display more flexibility to survive.

Good article about a happy life vs. a meaningful one.

This is a terrific article by +William Pannapacker in the +Chronicle of Higher Education about how employers are looking for liberal arts grads who have digital skills. As a publisher and business owner, I concur. That doesn't mean that "everyone has to be a coder." Not at all. Still, too many grads are failing to get critical training, even for the kinds of employers--publishers, museums, libraries--that have jobs aligned to these grads' interests.

This is an important topic, and not without controversy. I suspect we will be seeing a lot more about it in the coming years. What's critical is that publishers work with faculty and administrators to find good ways to measure the efficacy of their publications. It can't be done in a vacuum.

While lectures have their limits, they can be effective and moving. My favorite profs in college were also terrific lecturers.

Good article about McSweeney's: interesting founder, interesting publications, interesting company.

Me in a nutshell: "Many still prefer the print paper, even though they use tablets, smartphones, and the web to read lots of other stuff." I read +The Dallas Morning News religiously 7 days a week, but in print. The only time I ever visit the website is to read (free) blog posts that I come across on Twitter, for example. I read lots of other publications in digital form, but so far there isn't a compelling reason to make my local paper one of them.
