Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

:: Thank you Doug for all your work on it - it is really quite fabulous. Peggy is thinking about Tree’s question - since it’s key purpose is fundraising for OSI-US - why not a sentence up front or putting that bullet first? Is our purpose first in the letter to spread the word about, open and hold space for OS -or- to generate income?

:: Doug wanted to make the first item something that people easily could do - and he would like us to recall we were excited about doing the letter in this fashion as it was a new way to look at it - let’s give rather than go to people with their hands out. Also he feels the folks who have been giving are used to seeing an email from us asking for money - he feels that will trigger their response. He does not want us to hold our hand out, but instead to get people involved in many ways. Karen recommends putting the question ‘where do you want to open space’ as a lead in.

:: Peggy’s thought on pricing - drop the price on the USWest video from $40 to $25. Doug recommends possibly bundling them? $30 for each? Karen also notes there may be Phelim’s video if it’s still existing after his computer loss. Gabriel reminds us to ask what is our purpose - if it’s not an income generator, look at how we get it out there more. Peggy says we make the most money on these - she suspects if we frame it right it might be a great income generator. Christine asks if we can consider having it a downloadable payable thing, to reduce the footprint and the expense for folks outside the country for mailing? This technical aspect can be discussed with Michael Herman.
