The official release date of allProject Gutenberg Etexts is at Midnight, Central
Time, of the last day of the stated month. Apreliminary version may often be posted forsuggestion, comment and editing by those whowish to do so. To be sure you have an up to datefirst edition [] please check file sizesin the first week of the next month. Since our ftpprogram has a bug in it that scrambles the date[tried to fix and failed] a look at the file size willhave to do, but we will try to see a new copy has atleast one byte more or less.Information about Project Gutenberg (one page)We produce about two million dollars for each hourwe work. The time it takes us, a ratherconservative estimate, is fifty hours to get anyetext selected, entered, proofread, edited,copyright searched and analyzed, the copyrightletters written, etc. This projected audience is onehundred million readers. If our value per text isnominally estimated at one dollar then we produce$2 million dollars per hour this year as we releasethirty-six text files per month, or 432 more Etexts in1999 for a total of 2000+ If these reach just 10% ofthe computerized population, then the total shouldreach over 200 billion Etexts given away this year.The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give AwayOne Trillion Etext Files by December 31, 2001.[10,000 x 100,000,000 = 1 Trillion] This is tenthousand titles each to one hundred millionreaders, which is only ~5% of the present numberof computer users.
At our revised rates of production, we will reachonly one-third of that goal by the end of 2001, orabout 3,333 Etexts unless we manage to get somereal funding; currently our funding is mostly fromMichael Hart's salary at Carnegie-MellonUniversity, and an assortment of sporadic gifts; thissalary is only good for a few more years, so we arelooking for something to replace it, as we don'twant Project Gutenberg to be so dependent on oneperson.We need your donations more than ever!All donations should be made to "ProjectGutenberg/CMU": and are tax deductible to theextent allowable by law.
