Print On Demand -or- Play Others Downtime

(pronounced: pod)

When this acronym is used as "Print On Demand" it refers to a form of book printing that utilizes digital technology so that every copy is actually an original (with no loss of quality even after thousands of copies).

From that file, books can be published in a range of formats: hardcover, paperback, and e-books for electronic book readers.

When this acronym is used as "Play Others Downtime" it is referring to a dolphin parent style of parenting that seeks collaboration, flexibility and balance along with plenty of rest, exercise and sleep.
