in reply to Is PerlMonks economically viable?

I would be willing to kick in a reasonable subscription pledge.

To some degree, I have already done so; I've bought seven of my last eight technical books through the Monastery's link to FatBrain. The hope being that some of that dough would get directed vroom's way. Some does...not enough.

This is one reason why, when I suggest a book, I use the the [isbn://...] tags. I've even sent /msg's to myself to set up the proper links (hoping that vroom gets more than a round at Stiles that quarter.) I take that extra moment to find the ISBN number, just in case someone clicks and buys.

While I would hope that pledge drives aren't as annoying as the ones currently running on our local NPR stations, I would hope that folks click the banner ads, buy the TShirts, and buy books through the local affiliation links.

Support our fearless leader...bandwidth isn't free.
