My column in the Phoenix today, “Lowering the price barriers to education,” would have been a lot better if it could have had hyperlinks in it 😛 Sigh… I’ll always be a blogger at heart. One link that should have been included is the Swat Book Buyback program, an attempt at starting a Swarthmore-specific website for selling and trading books with each other. Sadly, nobody has heard of it, and it doesn’t seem to be getting much traffic… hopefully people will actually start using it, if it actually works. Most people I talked to just used Half.com, which is an eBay project, and not Swarthmore-specific. Does the Phoenix have a linking policy? I feel like there should be more links in the online versions of their articles, but I can understand how this would cause editorial headaches.
I also began contributing to the Daily Gazette’s “photo of the day”… the picture you see in this post is my first submission (which was accepted).
