A digest would be a HUGE help and invaluable! However, a good job
takes talent and time - both of which should be paid for in my
opinion. How would people feel about subscriptions that would
underwrite the time of a talented dedicated editor?
It's just a thought - It takes me hours each week to digest the SLED.
Personally, I would sacrifice coffee money to free up some of that
time and know I wasn't missing important developments, conversations
Just my own opinion :-)
