From the Open Business Guide at

"Mute is an example of participatory publishing and a networked economic model. It has a number of interesting new services, including print on demand (POD) and Networked Distribution, developed on top of the Open Source web tools Drupal CMS and CiviCRM (constituent relationship management). The Mute site has been designed to address the difficulties facing a small publishing cultural group, the most persistent of which remain reaching your audience and covering your production costs; a problem which Mute addresses using POD. POD is a high quality, low cost form of digital book printing, through which one or 1000s of copies can be printed. In conjunction with a network of self-selecting agents, the NGO web campaigning tool CiviCRM will be used to manage all aspects of distribution (including orders, deliveries and payments) over the net."
