I tend to agree with your idea, and it's my understanding that this is
the goal of a number of contributors to this list, including Hunter

Given that the web has made publishing fairly easy, why not at least
get a web-based version going now? A number of us, including yourself,
have web development skills and can act as editors. It wouldn't take
much expense, and a fairly minimal amount of effort (especially with a
number of people helping) to get a weekly publication up and running
online, and we can even solicit contributions through PayPal to help
with the cost and to go towards printing a paper-based version.

Just a thought.
