Visionary News is designed to make a small thing go a long way. A limited amount of local content is required. The rest of the material is provided by Visionary Society and appears in all editions. The intial size will be 8 letter size pages, but can expand in future editions, to include tabloid size pages, depending on local interest.
Our goal is mainly to present your community in a new way, as a question, a challenge and a choice, and to make this clear and inescapable. Visionary Society is proof that we do have power, if we choose to use it. Go ahead, use it!
