Subject: RE: Digital Goods Draft Memo & Final Report

I disagree with the need for an executive summary.   Given that the majority of the report is short informational pieces on a variety of issues, I find it hard to imagine the content of such a summary.  Perhaps Bruce and Steve could provide an outline of such a summary for us to discuss at 3:00. 

A different approach to a summary is to state the “Conclusion” at the front of the report after the “Mission & Goals” portion.  As I stated before, the majority of the report is short informational pieces on a variety of issues.  If people want more information to understand why we came to this conclusion, they can continue reading.  However, I think the majority of readers want to read that one paragraph – the conclusion.  The easier it is to find, the better.
