I would put it perhaps a bit more strongly: we have to make sure the TS once again becomes the kind of organization that is so inherently inspiring that people will gladly support it with their time and energy. 

I agree that means it must be open; volunteers that are still there need to feel stimulated and supported; and the internet needs to be used in a way that make the organisation more effective. 

Anyhow- good topic. Turns out one of the things we need, pretty much world wide, is volunteers willing to video tape and turn video into a youtube ready format.
