The Wasteland


have an
up to date first edition [xxxxx10x.xxx] please check
file sizes
in the first week of the next month. Since our ftp
program has
a bug in it that scrambles the date [tried to fix and
failed] a
look at the file size will have to do, but we will try
to see a
new copy has at least one byte more or less.
Information about Project Gutenberg (one page)
We produce about two million dollars for each hour we
work. The
fifty hours is one conservative estimate for how long it
we take
to get any etext selected, entered, proofread, edited,
copyright
searched and analyzed, the copyright letters written,
etc. This
projected audience is one hundred million readers. If
our value
per text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we
produce $2
million dollars per hour this year as we release thirty-
two text
files per month, or 384 more Etexts in 1998 for a total
of 1500+
If these reach just 10% of the computerized population,
then the
total should reach over 150 billion Etexts given away.
The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away One
Trillion Etext
Files by the December 31, 2001. [10,000 x
100,000,000=Trillion]
This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million
readers,
which is only 10% of the present number of computer
users. 2001
should have at least twice as many computer users as
that, so it
will require us reaching less than 5% of the users in
