    That is real close to me but I dont need any more paper. They might be good for a wood stove:D

    Wow. That's NUTS. Especially considering 100% of the "73 Magazine" publication is available free online and has been since Greene's passing.

    Who on earth would want TONS of old paper magazines? I do hope they find a home but I'll bet that's very very unlikely

    How much of the online versions will still be available 30 years from now?

    Or to counter, how many people to you realistically think will want to read them 30 years from now?

    The internet "is forever" - they will still be here, when the paper versions are long ago dust.

    But I doubt anyone will be left alive who cares by then

    I would love to have it, but then again, I would love to have alot of stuff. And someplace to put it all.

    while I don't care a hoot about wayne's magazines, just adding that the internet is not forever.

    search and access is controlled and while some things get cached forever, finding and accessing it when you want will be a challenge.

    They are available in many formats (pdf, etc). They could be downloaded and burned to DVDs. Or even download them to a Kindle.

    but will they?

    and could you access them, should you desire?
