This seems like a very personal difference (on top of generational trends). I read physical things, sometimes a decade later (Tokana!), but eventually, because they are around in my space getting in my face. I am afraid many many downloads, on the other hand, just drop into the black hole of my home directory ecosystem, or even get downloaded multiple times when I don't recognize them! (And if not downloaded, they hang out on the ever- increasing line of tabs in my browser until it crashes.) So I am waving the flag for physical copies, and plan to order one. Better still for me are dead-tree subscriptions, that show up magically in the mailbox and make my day. I can only dream about a world with conlang dead-tree subscriptions. (Would it be monthly? Have a crossword? Or would every issue feature a Relay-like text to decipher yourself?) tylakèhlpë'fö, Amanda
