TapeOp issues on DVD? Someday?

Post by jcooke » Fri Sep 01, 2006 1:41 pm

I just saw that the New Yorker magazine is offering a dvd set of every issue ever printed. It is 9dvd's and only costs $60. I know the folks at TapeOp probably don't have time to do such a thing, but it sure would be cool. You can even search the text of the New Yorker issues for keywords.

I'm not sure I get the implication. :(

Er, simply that if the Tape Op folks are so busy that they can't convert 30 articles to .pdf, they are certainly too busy to author DVDs of 50+ issues of the magazine.

Which is no slam, they're putting out a magazine on top of having full-time jobs. I know how tough it is to manage a full-time job and a side business.

Thats what I thought.

Why doesn't the community volunteer to help? I mean, a virtual back catalog of PDF's on a DVD would be something that nets my money.

I'm sure there's someone on here that has time to do that; that person ain't me.


Of course, if it's gonna make them money, why should anyone from the community need to volunteer? :wink:

Karma? Support? The chance to get the DVD free for being a swell guy and helping out? Lotsa reasons I suppose. I already get the magazine for free, so paying for digital copies of the whole back catalog would not be unprecedented. (I've only been subscibing maybe 2 years)
