Abstract

This note contends that electronic dissemination will rapidly become the usual medium for esoteric publications. It is speedier, less costly, and in many ways more convenient than the printed page. It also permits more flexibility than the printed page with the possibility of including sound and moving images. Objections based on the need for refereeing and fear of plagiarism are unfounded. It is likely that electronic publication will alter the mission and perhaps viability of professional organizations, but adaptations are possible which will lead associations to perform new tasks in different ways.
