By Craig Brougher

I suspect that a large part of the Digest will gravitate to advertising, sooner or later. I also believe that if MMD doesn't take advertising, someone else will. Nothing wrong with it, but I for one don't like to wade through the for sale stuff in the technical section. My vote would be to at least organize the bulletin, and to have certain brevity requirements as well. In other words, no description beyond what is necessary, since they have the address and can contact the seller personally. I also like the idea of hanging all the for sale stuff at the bottom of the Digest for now, later creating a second "page" just for business. Call it MMC (mechanical music classified). I think it should be organized in sections then, so a buyer or seller could go right to that section, like "Rolls, Disks, Music Boxes, Player Pianos, Collections, Misc. etc." I would also not think it unreasonable that someone should have to subscribe to it separately and that a subscription would cost a modest amount. I would also suggest that sooner or later the buyer or seller ("For Sale" and "Wanted") will be required to divide his offerings into these categories, so will have to send several e-mails to meet category requirements. This could eventually get huge. Don't rule out the possibility of making some money on this, Jody. You deserve it!
