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? -Ross.
