From the EditorTIME, NUMBERS, AND MONEY.
Publication date for this issue is June 14, which means CM is now in its second year. Originally we planned to make next week's issue the first of Volume III (and have the party then). But since Volume I (issues 1 - 18) was sort of a trial run, we've decided to extend Volume II (our first "official" volume) to a whole 52 weekly issues.
That means the party and all of the official thank-yous and everything else wait until October 11th, when we publish Vol. II, No. 52. Well, probably nobody but us and the National Library pays much attention to how we number our volumes and issues, but the anniversary does bring up those words we've been putting at the bottom of our table of contents every week:
We do ask regular readers, however, for an annual contribution of $42 to help defray costs (. . . through June 7, 1996, Manitoba readers have had their donations paid courtesy of a Manitoba charitable foundation). Money sent to CM qualifies as a charitable donation.Manitoba readers, we're now asking you too for a $42 (tax-deductible!) contribution towards the cost of producing CM. We think we've been putting out a quality journal -- and if you look at our welcome page you'll see some of the honours we've received from people who agree with us, like the Canadian Internet Directory.
We've been here, every week, for a year, and we intend to stick around for the long haul and grow with the medium. Our unrestricted-access policy remains -- we think CM is a valuable national resource, one that everyone should be able to see -- but if you're a regular reader, your contribution will help.
