But my group (GuIT) distributes the DVD to all the members every year. 
What will happen if they distribute an usb-drive with a nice logo of TUG 
on the surface? We are promoting the TUG also when the distribution is 
obsolete and you can give the drive to another person or use it (also 
without the content). I would be interested in  buy a little quantity of 
drives to distribute to my students.

I think that the future is in others physical mediums than the DVD or CD.

The solution of the zip file with all tlnet/2008, which people can 
easily download and unzip to their USB drive, is also very good.
