Here's an idea for yearbook advisers

I was talking to a group of high school teachers today about convergence and new forms of news, etc., and as we talked, the discussion came around to Web logs.

Given that the yearbook is probably the most-read publication in a school, but it only comes out once -- at the end of the year -- what about augmenting it with a compilation of memories throughout the year (and, with the right disclaimer, you might be able to use some of it in the yearbook, too)?

Consider a blog such as we are doing at the University of South Carolina with J-School Year, where a group of about two-dozen students are chronicling a year in a modern American J-school. Not only does it provide some multimedia content -- but what a great way to promote the yearbook, too. Do it with a mobile Web log and you get pictures along with it!

another idea that we did in high school (as far as pictures that didn't make it into the yearbook goes) was they took all the leftover photos at the end of the year and put them on a cd that they sold to the students.
