in reply to Is PerlMonks economically viable?

Hopefully this thread is not completely cold... I have been thinking about this since it came out. I have gained a lot of benefit from the Monestary this year and I'm willing to contribute. However, my clients have benefitted even more because I am a better coder and get work done more quickly (in that way I have a sort of reduced benefit as I then get less money for the same work :). What I've been trying to think of is a way my clients could contribute without asking them to make a donation (which is unlikely).

My thought was what if the Monestary sold CD-ROMs of some useful data that clients could purchase. If there were significant profit figured into the cost, the client would get perceived value, the Monestary would get money, and I could browse some data (e.g. useful code) at the beach (well, maybe somewhwere else).

Thoughts?
