“This post gets back to an issue that I addressed early on in my chronicling of writing a paperless dissertation. Namely, that many, if not most people I’ve encountered are dubious at best when presented with the idea of giving up stacks of scribbled upon, highlighted, and unsearchable journal articles and drafts.”

Website of the Week

The TD:D blog carnival is published weekly on Thursdays.
