information after the Internet.
Periodicals are edited and vetted.
They reflect the opinion of their times.
– Articles are written about events at the time those events
happen where books are usually written after the event has
passed.
They reflect evolving information and point of view.
It is often the only information available when
book publishers are not interested.
