Help! Ctein needs about 100 more people to volunteer to receive their dye transfer print orders after the holidays. It's no risk, really—Ctein is very good about filling orders and meeting his obligations. He's the only writer I know, for example, who always hits his deadlines. If you've ordered a couple of dye transfer prints and would be willing to wait just a little longer to receive them—for the good of the cause—please email him and volunteer. It would make his life a lot easier.
Featured Comment by Martin: "Mike & Ctein, just a side note: As an economist, I have been taught that people 'react on incentives.' Surely, it's a fine thing if there are some hundred people who will voluntarily agree to get their prints shipped some time later. However, if you want to systematically lower the number of people who want their prints immediately, you will have to lure them into it. You could either give those who need their prints immediately a negative incentive (monetary or otherwise), or those who agree to receive the prints late a positive incentive (though I admit that I myself don't know what this exactly should be. Maybe a nice bonus or rebate on future orders?). Just my two cents. By the way, I agreed to receiving my prints late. In my humble opinion, Ctein's offer is so generous that this is the only reasonable reply."
