People like to pay for anything, this give them sort of security. In the 
world where everything cost something, a gesture of free, not profitable 
will is rare, like Brian does.
I remember here discussion about paying for the Photoshop licenses. When we 
buy almost any multimedia hardware we can get copy of Adobe free. But that 
was scare users, and they wanted to pay! It is something in our psychic, we 
have to pay, and complain about prices.

PS. I have a theory that anyone who does something for free is rewarded in 
another way, i.e. happy family life, free Leica finderů

I think Brian is a saint. I appreciate the existence of the LUG. But pay
MONEY to belong to the LUG - when I don't have to pay to subscribe to the 
NYTimes or WashPost sites, when I have available to me for free at Magnum 
and VII some of the world's best photojournalism and documentary
photography, when I can go to the UNC site and stumble through William
Gedney's ENTIRE archive?
