We get the Cooperative Connections monthly note in return for buying electricity from Rosebud Electric. Now and then it has some interesting stories. One that caught my attention was "World's Largest Piston Engine". The information in the story with more and easier to see photos can also be found at Vince Lewis on Big Engine
The Vince's Worthwhile Website has lots of other interesting stuff. The story linked above is on his science and technology page where you can also look at the world's smallest engine.
I also see that the SDPB tech-savvy dudes who hit the radio waves some Fridays at "Midday" with the Computer Guys are adding a column for the Rosebud Cooperative Connections under "Technology Tips". They also have their site Tech Radio.
Looks like a couple more good ways to get information out to South Dakotans from our state institutions. Too bad South Dakota colleges and universities don't make more of an attempt to be directly useful to the people who pay those college presidents their nice wages.
