Digital versus printed publishing – a world-wide conundrum.
Let’s maximise the advantages of both media.
A printed branch newsletter does not require batteries charged to be read, and with care can be read for years to come.
If you were to fumble a set of instructions into your tree nursery’s manure tank, you might wish you had been reading them from a photocopied newsletter rather than from your new iPhone.
On the other hand, “just the other day on the tree crops website Recent Discussions someone detailed exactly what we want to do – I’ve still got a couple of dollars bandwidth left so let’s go on-line and read how to do this job properly…”
The Internet is probably not a plot to prevent printed material. So please continue scribing, printing and circulating your branch newsletters so we can use the best bits (judiciously, see below) to publicise our causes, events, achievements and to welcome new knowledge and enthusiasm from new members!
To our heroic print editors; to allow you re-use of each others’ material, we still intend not to ‘web your work to non-members within 3 months of original publication [February 2014, restriction eased to allow NEWS that TreeCropper is not listing to reserve for printing =) ].
To our precious book authors and stockholders, please be careful who you entrust our valuable publication manuscripts into the care of.
