Maybe you think that the big "Games" event today is the premier of the Hunger Games movie. You'd be wrong. The big event that you should be anticipating is when you buy/borrow/download Ted Kosmatka's amazing new book, The Games.

It's hard to not feel that we are passing through a post-Gutenberg (post-Gutenbergian?) phase. Hasn't the e-book, the Kindle and the Nook, killed its paper cousin? Surprisingly, the answer is no.

Good on Sam Sommers, Tufts University psychology professor and blogger for the Huffington Post and Psychology Today.

Just renewed my subscription to The Economist. Academic pricing is $77 a year - and you can sign-up for 2 years at a time. A $154 hit on the credit credit card. Who says that print is dead? Who says that nobody will pay for quality journalism? Who says that social media is replacing professional journalism?  Who says that we need to be able to tweet or comment on or share everything that we read?
