The economics of print are a disaster right now and probably only going to  
get worse.

There is an announcement that Quest Magazine will be published 4 times  a
year instead of 6 times now. This is apparently due to financial reasons.  So
less print material is going to go out to readers.

Printing and  publishing industry is going thru a period of drastic change.

Print  readership is going down and on-line going up.

Some newspapers have  abandoned print versions or reduced the number of  print

On-line publishing is on the rise.

On-demand  printing or reproduction is on the horizon and seems to be
catching  up.

Coupled with the above, there is the question of reprinting  out-of-print
theosophical classics/important works, as pointed out by  another member.

>From a common man's point of view, here are some  thoughts for consideration:

1. Make all available theosophical material  on-line.
2. Try to use Internet tools to distribute theosophical materials.  Both to
members and public.
3. Explore the possibility of on-demand  printing of publications to meet the
demands of those who want a print  edition.
4. Review the whole publishing wing of TS to determine how to keep  up with
the changes.
