Why does it have to follow /any/ traditional publishing model?
I sort of like the idea that maybe 3 articles come out in a week, then
nothing for a week or two, then another article comes out, and then one
comes out every day for a 13 day span.
If the delivery method is purely electronic, and it's a given that the
intended audience would have tools to be alerted of new articles, why
bother with a formal schedule?
