If the AKA had a better web outreach there might be a lot more web-savvy members, and perhaps younger members at that. (No offense, I recently became eligible for an AARP card myself, but I think we need more younger members--a lot more)

Uh Oh ....... he said "young people" ......... now that's an OLD can of worms...

Ok so I was going down this road too and thought that I would have company with at least John B. Just did not want to type so damn much.
Any who as I posted before on this topic, AKA needs to catch up with the rest of the world.
@John, AMEN brother! Amen!

To add on, many of the great kite people are leaving the earth and we are missing the chance to interview them on kites and the lives they lived with kites.
I could see full kite making instruction online. I can see full recorded coverage of some of the biggest and even small intriguing kite festivals around the globe.
What would it cost ? Not sure, but I can tell you a few short years ago we could not even consider it. And now (like any other websites) if you can produce traffic you can get sponsors. WEB = global

John is dead on about pirating. LOL we should pray people want kiting info so bad they would steal it!! On this point a a rap artist named 50 Cent said when his new album came out a few years ago " get my music anyway you can, down load, copy it, what ever " . Why? Because he gets paid more for the concerts, sponsors, and being put on merchandise etc... the music media is the path not the destination.
Likewise spread kiting with the new tools and options. Its hard to be passive when everyone is trying to get our attention 24/7.
Ever watch the show "Overhaulin"?

@John REVGILD huh? Insurance? 15% off? What took me so long to sign up? Link please.
