ThinkWell was once a simple project by one person with one entryway and one delivery method. The cost of photocopying and mailing would make it prohibitively expensive now, even if physically feasible.

Ideas don't need to be new or innovative to make someone think. Certainly anyone in the SCA must have had the thrill of discovering something that's a thousand years old, that many others had found before. What's new to me is new in my universe. What's new to someone who has just joined the SCA is as new as it can be. Newness to someone who's been working on the same thoughts for forty years might be welcome news.
