1GB USB sticks may hold enough content for a good user experience, but 
from a cost perspective DVDs, even if not full, may prove a better 
solution: we give away an important number of CDs at various events. 
Replacing those with USB sticks would cost a lot more but replacing them 
with DVDs will cost about the same.

So probably a good middle ground is to target the spin size-wise at 1GB 
sticks and distribute it on DVDs.
