    And I'm pretty sure that of those found, maybe a few percent were actually registered on the site. So they got around.

    What's your opinion on just placing copies of Buk's poems, one of the manuscripts, randomly, like stuffed inside a newspaper at the 7-11 or in a coffe shop "books to browse" shelf or stapled to a telephone pole?

    It's not something I would spend my time doing, but that doesn't mean anything.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Your time means something...to you.

    Nah, I wouldn't really go out of my way to do it. It's just my mind wandering. Maybe I should just shell out a few bucks and enroll in the project.

    As his current publisher, I'd say that is something that Ecco should do...as they stand to benefit from it most.

    It begs the question though: do people still engage with the physical world like this...or has the digital world taken over? Case in point: some of the GPP broadsides bounce around Tumblr., Pinterest, Instagram, etc. -- reaching tens of thousands of eyes (albeit in a mainly transitory fashion). The tactile, lasting letterpress broadside is a thing people can keep and stick up on their wall...

    But do people do it?

    It doesn't publish new stuff.

    You can, however, still buy broadsides to hide (or keep).

    Yes, it's "active," there's just nothing to join anymore.

    People still register their finds, and as Hosh pointed out, you can still get broadsides to drop on unsuspecting readers.
