NEWSSCAN GOES DARKIt sounds like their funding ran out. I've gotten Newsscan in one incarnation or another for at about 10 years, it was called Edupage when I started subscribing in 1994. It was a quick way to catch up on novel items, but a myriad of blogs have taken over its primary role.
We're going to let NewsScan Daily go dark for awhile, and will be turning out the lights tomorrow, March 1st.
While we're gone, maybe we'll reinvent ourselves. Or maybe we won't.
We'll be continuing with our various other activities, including our editorial work for ACM and the publication of Innovation Weekly, to which you can obtain a free trial subscription from our the NewsScan site.
It was a labor of love and it did it's job well. It's going out in good form. I wish the authors and publisher all the very best.
