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
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).
