In a recent email, we promised that a print-it-yourself edition of Raise the Hammer would soon be available. I'm proud to announce that we're ready to publish our first kick at the can:
We know there's still work to do, but we decided to start somewhere and then improve as we go. The Raise the Hammer Print Edition is eight pages, prints onto 8 1/2 x 11 paper (preferably double-sided), and features selected articles from the October 20, 2006 web issue.
We hereby throw ourselves at your mercy and ask if you will print off a few copies and leave them in local public places (cafes, libraries, shops, etc.) so people who don't normally get their news from the Internet can still read our articles.
Eventually, we would like to put together a business model and generate revenue to pay for mass printing, but in the meantime, this lets us get the word out while remaining proudly ad-free.
Thank you in advance to all who are willing to help us by spreading the word in print (and please let me know if you do this so we can keep an eye out for new readers).
