Yeah, it would be hard to give out free advice on the "newest nodes"
page , then turn around and ask for money on another page. But I
think it could work, for companies who wanted to support Perlmonks,
but needed something "real for their money"(i.e. for the accounting dept.), instead of making a
donation. Imagine a "collaborative projects page" which has all the
"script requests" on it. Then all the monks could hash out the problem
online, like they do with the newest nodes. They usually come up with
the "best solution", and then some other monks could volunteer to
write the docs, which would then be reviewed by all in a similar manner.
I remember back when the web was taking off, there was a REAL
monastery somewhere out west, that made their money by writing
html. They even were featured on a national news broadcast. My dream now, is to build a "retirement home" for down and out old
programmers. It would give old nerds someplace to go and be amoung fellow geek-retirees, who would then raise cash by implementing the above script writing plan.
