A little light reading

Here's my favorite line from this week's Schools and Libraries News Brief:

"Before you begin, be sure to review all relevant program guidance."

Like that's even possible. So it got me wondering, how many pages of guidance are on the SLD Web site? So I figured if I googled on the pages in with the word "the" in it, I'd catch almost all the pages. Google says: 781 Web pages.

Of course, that's only the USAC guidance. Based on a quick scan of the FCC's Schools & Libraries Web page, it looks like close to 200 FCC E-Rate orders.

And then, of course, there's the 700-page tome of secret PIA rules.

If we have to review all that, all of a sudden a 73-day window seems short.
