The news threshhold, revisited

Posted at 12:56 PM on August 22, 2007 by Bill Wareham

A couple months ago a news release from Starbucks got me thinking about the news threshhold, that is, the line between news and non-news.

A release from the University of North Dakota - UND Again Named One of 'The Best 366 Colleges' In United States By The Princeton Review' - helps quantify it, I guess. If you're in the top 366, it's news; 367th and below, you're out of luck.
