Name of the game in Internet is speed.

It appears that the digest is being released on a monthly basis like a
monthly print magazine. So you wait for a month to see next set of msgs.
This is nothing but a reflection, IMHO, of the paper based magazine
mentality. Those of us who grew up in computer/fax/telephone based culture
of speed and used to fast paced communication may not like the delay. But
most (especially in the TS/TSA hierarchy) are accostumed to slow paper based
snail speed all their life time (may be 90% of the total life span) and it
is very difficult to many of them switch gears and get on the fast lane.
Probably if you believe in manvantaras, slow pace does not at all matter. We
have all the time in the world to deal with important and critical issues
and we can pick up in the next incarnation.
