Well, JMartin, I was wondering whether a database sort of arrangement would be an interim digital solution. There’s already the “last year” link on this year’s MPs… some clever person could make an interface like a yearbook-adapted google calendar and each new Porch could slot in to the appropriate date, allowing a visual, clickable navigation. And of course it would be searchable so if you have a particular interest in, say, goldenrod, you could get all the entries containing that word, possibly displayed in interesting ways (a highlighted dot on each day they occur on the calendar? a different colour for each year?)

Of course this is nothing like paper. But given the nature of the means of original distribution wouldn’t it be exciting to extend the concept to more flexible digital home?

Dave, what do you think?
