Clickable A4 for Flat World Knowledge. E- newsletters are a low hanging fruit.

All you have to do is ad the TinyPurls and Smart QR. Then use USPS to send 350 each to 200 Flat World Knowledge users. Reward them with credits for the print stuff. 70,000 leaflets on the street in a day or two, with a minimal carbon footprint with a $960 distribution cost. Plus all that data from the click streams.
