Kathy Jensen replied to Nicholas Triscritti's discussion Commercial Web Marketing on an EDU site?
"I think I need to clarify. We're not considering advertising on our main web pages. The requests (so far) have been coming from sites that are much more buried and may be cosponsored sites set up in conjunction with outside companies. At least…"
