This week's Dog Ears feature a crowdsourcing project I might actually be able to get behind, as well as yet another example of a book deal gone horribly wrong:
- Interested in joining a crowdsourcing transcription project of Jeremy Bentham's works? Check out the article "Scholars Recruit Public for Project" from The New York Times.
- Have any hope for the future of the American education system? Then read Robert Reich's "The Attach on American Education" to fix that right up.
- There's a really interesting article about the dissection of the Beats' lives currently in style at The Millions: "Will You Beat Hagiographers Please Be Quiet, Please?"
- Want to feel like banging your head against a wall? Then read The New York Times' "WikiLeaks Founder Signs Book Deal." Assange says of the $800,000 deal, "I don't want to write this book, but I have to." Spare me.
