Digital Campus #21 – To Read or Not To Read

We’re excited to have two terrific guests on the podcast this week, Sunil Iyengar of the National Endowment for the Arts and Matt Kirschenbaum of the University of Maryland. Sunil and Matt debate the NEA’s recent report, To Read or Not To Read, which generated a lot of headlines and hand-wringing when it was released last month. (Blog subscribers may remember my critique of the report.) We also cover Microsoft’s courtship of Yahoo and what it means (if anything) for campuses, provide an update on a problematic U.S. House of Representatives bill, and dissect the new Horizon Report on digital technologies that will affect universities in the coming five years.

Coming up next time on Digital Campus: a discussion with Yakov Shafranovich, the creator of PublicDomainReprints.org, which was covered on Digital Campus #19 and 20.
