“What really went wrong for Borders and Angus & Robertson” on The Conversation

Final Closing Down Sale at A&R

Today, Melbourne University along with 8 other University partners and CSIRO launches a new media venture, The Conversation. It will present independent commentary by academics and researchers. The Business+Economy section features my article on “What really went wrong for Borders and Angus & Robertson.” Using publicly available data I explore several explanations for the demise of REDgroup, the firm which owned and operated the Borders and A&R stores in this region.

  1. Seconded – where’s the RSS feed
     
    Also, you need to have a non-facebook option for logging in to comment, I’m not going to allow you the access you want just to comment on a blog
     
    But interesting post 🙂

  2. Talk about not understanding online workings.
     
    I’d echo the above comment – the site can’t /won’t succeed while it requires facebook or twitt logins to comment. Silly.

    Who made that decision?

  3. Hi David, Martin and Francis – I have forwarded your feedback to the folks who run The Conversation. They are still in beta so I suspect RSS and other features will eventually make their way in.

  4. Here’s a reply from Jack Rejtman:

    Based on your feedback (and others), we have since added RSS and updated comments [to theconversation.edu.au]. We will be opening up the system to allow more people to participate shortly.
    Regards,
    Jack
