    A good news to UIC, but

    What happened to MacNN? This is simply bad writing. Can we make sure things are gone over at least once to filter out typos and grammatic blunders? Please?

    UIUC not UIC


    UIC is the Chicago campus. This is at Urbana-Champaign.

    I agree

    I've also noticed this more and more often in MacNN. When read, it just comes off unproffesional and brings into question how good or accurate the reporting is....

    MacNN has no editing

    MacNN publishes summaries of press releases, rehashed news from other sites, and very little else. It's a great aggregator, but there is no journalism or editing on this site. I've started to get used to it.

    It's UIUC

    UIC = University of Illinois at Chicago
    UIUC = University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana

    The cluster is at UIUC.
