In most of the discussions around FreeMedia, the thread eventually
boils down to "there are more requests than there are volunteers to
service those requests and, the costs of courier are exponentially
high". How about looking at the problem in terms of folks are
requesting for media (note the absence of the the phrase "free of
cost") and, we need to think up a way to route the media to these
folks ? Or, in other words, how many routes can we think up that would
get the media to them ?
