Re: January BNL cool article - why not on the web page?
>>I don't object to correcting spelling errors, but I do not think we should otherwise "update it".<<
Again, setting priorities is key. Just the task of scanning, formatting and production is a hurculian set of tasks to begin with. Any editting is most likely beyond the initial project. If the KMI and or Huber's KilliDate were included, then the reader would have a good way of determining accurate names. My guess is that the authors of both of those refrences use some form of electronic tools to store their data, either a word processor or relational database, or both. So that creating PDF files is very simple. The tricky part would be the licensing as the AKA would have to negotiate with the authors.
The business model I'd like to see is an annual or subscription, where all of the information is updated every issue (or maybe every two years). The authors/publishers gain by receiving relatively fixed annual payments. The hobbyist gains by having timely and accurate information available. And the AKA gains, first as a publisher (see above), and second as strengthening its value to it's members and the hobby in general.
