Everybody's Favorite Topic

I love JM's suggestion. If only I could get the students to buy in. I have preached the "printing is dead" philosophy for years. I know it cost us to darn much each year.
Our campus Housing unit has gone to https://www.wepanow.com/

I am thinking about exploring it for our use.

See you in SD for my free drink.

Soooooo.

600 free pages valued at $.05 per page = $30. Times three years of law school = $90. Ergo, buy everyone a Kindle (http://cca.li/bd) when they arrive and send all print jobs to PDF and email it to their Kindle.

Print is dead. Deal with it. ;-)
