Check It Out: Data on death made engaging

Ah, the 300s. Not sure what I mean by "the 300s?" For the past several weeks, I have been taking the reader on an abbreviated tour of the Dewey Decimal classification system. The journey has really just begun, with brief stops in the 000s, 100s and 200s. Now it's time to tackle the 300s — very broadly known as the social sciences section. Not that the other Dewey areas aren't impressive in scope, but there's a lot of stuff packed into this particular call number. How much? Well, here's a list of sub-categories: sociology, anthropology, statistics, political science, economics, law, public administration, social services, education, commerce, and customs and folklore. Whew! And the sub, sub-categories go on for much longer, so I think you can see that a boat-load of information is docked in this area. Speaking of boats, transportation falls in the 300s, so yes, you can find books about boats, too. Ahoy!

HBO Go-ing away from cable

NEW YORK — Next year, HBO is cutting the cord and selling its popular streaming video service HBO Go as a stand-alone product, as more Americans choose to watch the Web, not the TV. Viewers longing to see "Game of Thrones", "True Detective" and "Veep" will no longer have to pay big bucks for cable and satellite contracts. Is this the end of pay-TV as we know it?
