I was surprised to read this from Jacob Weisberg`s Twitter account:
Chron of HIgher Ed piece explains Tony Judt and his views. Too long to read online, well worth printing out.
This isn`t about politics. Poor Tony Judt, who passed away recently after a struggle with Lou Gehrig`s Disease, was all wrong about social democracy, and Jacob Weisberg
is wrong about many issues, but what I don`t understand is why the "Chairman and editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, a unit of the Washington Post Co. devoted to developing Web-based publications,"
who has been with Slate
, an online magazine, since 1996, thinks an article of less than 5000 words is too long to read on your computer, and should be printed out on 12 pieces of 8 1/2 by 11 paper. It`s like something out of Dilbert
Here`s Weisberg on NPR,
struggling with the idea of reading on an electronic device. He claimed in Slate that he`s trying the Kindle 2,
but he`s still printing out paper articles.
