GPO

I guess if you can’t beat them join them — that seems to be the approach the Government Printing Office is taking.  I recently received an email from the GPO announcing a partnership with Google ebookstore to electronically publish government publications “a fraction of the GPO printed version.”

At first, I was a bit taken aback, but realized that as a publisher, which is one of GPO’s role, this is an effective way of distributing content. 

 Interesting times.
