Long time followers of this site have no doubt seen, speculated upon, and talked to their family about the brief hiatus in service. Rest assured, fellow readers, freedonkeyposter.com (FDP) has not been lying fallow...wait, yes, that is what it has been doing. Lying fallow so that the newest harvest will be even more bountiful than the ones preceding.
In this vein the top levels of management have procured some of the top writers and business strategists, and you will be seeing their writing along with mine in the weeks, years, and millennia to come.
Naturally, the main focus of the FDP enterprise is in providing no-cost posters of donkeys to the the needy, and that mission is still what drives us. But like any trip, the person driving really has no control over the vehicle at all — the ultimate destination is left completely in the hands of whichever passenger is the strongest and most determined. In the unlikely event that the driver is the most physically gifted, the gods usually intervene by granting the vehicle sentience and the ability to challenge the desires of its occupants.
We seem to have gotten off track there, but that pretty much proves my point.You can't just create enough donkey posters to provide them to every single person who needs them, you have to determine who needs them the most, and then think about what a donkey poster might be like for that person. Because like snowflakes, (free) donkey posters are cold randomized objects that can cripple an entire region's transportation system.
It's possible that I'm talking about the power of belief.
