I could see something to it if Rick is out to make a few bucks from it. Nothing
wrong with that since people do like to be compensated for their efforts, but
if it's just something done for love of the hobby then I would think all
avenues of distribution are worthwhile. Why not have a regular show on YouTube
while we're at it. People could actually showcase their languages so others can
actually *hear* them instead of just describing them with ASCII text. Or maybe
even a regularly scheduled podcast?
