This is a very common and natural feeling.  After all, print and paper
represent a commitment to stability.  The credibility of Lojban went
way up when we were able to show our hardback grammar book, in 1500
copies no less.

BTW, anybody still want a copy, autographed by the author?  Only US$38.

The Loglan/Lojban community has not been so fortunate: the Loglan of 1960
has only the basic content words in common with today's Loglan, and not
even that with today's Lojban.
