(((Ladies and gentlemen, the serried ranks of the Viridian faithful have produced a gratifying response to my call for magazine proposals in Note 00235. We definitely have a magazine on our hands here. In fact, with a little more capital and a squad of editors, it's dead obvious that this mailing list could easily sustain four, maybe five magazines.
(((You can stop sending those babies in just any time now; no, really, I'm good. With even a remote bit of luck, this is going to be the most Viridian publication ever seen; the first one that reads, smells, and even looks almost completely, uh, Viridian. The mailing list will take a back seat this month as I assemble this flood of entries into coherent shape and martial my brave graphics volunteers.)))
(((In the meantime, I'm heading for New York City, where I plan to deliver a somewhat Viridian-related speech on the issue of digital decay, at a conference aptly titled "Preserving the Immaterial". If you'd like to support the ever-worthy Guggenheim, do drop on by.)))
