I read with interest the "HIDDEN BENEFIT OF A LARGE LIBRARY".
It sure worked for my two kids. Both graduated Summa Cum Laude and have advanced degrees. But the scary thing is that there are people
who exist without books in their home. Less than 100? Heck, I am not sure that I have a room without at least hundred books.
Thanks, and congratulations. My kids have yet to hit college age. Two of the three are good readers; the other, not so much. But he's
a great visual learner and soaks up YouTube, becoming a whiz at magic tricks and Rubik's cube. A new frontier is in getting
numismatic information into audio and visual form for the cellphone-and-tablet generation.
Much of CoinWeek's original output now is in multi-media. Below are two good examples. The first is a podcast interview with
Philip Diehl about the Royal Mint situation. Second is an installment of a three piece video about how coins are made at the Austrian
Mint. This video focuses on the engraving process at the mint.
Last is a video of youngster Garrett Ziss's recent presentation for the Wilmington Coin Club on Capped Bust Images on Currency, which
found its way to Kenny's numismatic YouTube channel. Len Augsburger and I had talked about the popularity of Kenny's channel and
numismatic video in general. All of these things are great developments for our hobby, but something all publishers need to be taking
