Total so far: $1235
Donors: 66 (Thanks!)
My thanks to Bruce Sterling, for suggesting that Viridians donate "one lousy dollar right now." So far, 19 have donated $235. Thanks, Viridians!
I like to think that The Infinite Matrix embodies sound Viridian design priciples. Only good, microbial, well composted html here. No hydro-carbon-producing Flash animation.
What I like to do is publish neat stuff, so I'm feeling really sorry about withholding content. I've got a new Swanwick story, a new Langford, a new Schism Matrix, just waiting to go up. But I need some incentive here: $265 will do it.
If you haven't donated anything yet, and you enjoy the site, please donate what you can afford, even a dollar or two, to show your support. This will help us get funding in other ways: sponsors and grantors don't like to give money to a site that only a few people care about.
When we hit $1500, I'll post more Sterling and a new Michael Swanwick story. When donations reach the $2500 level, I'll post Ben Rosenbaum's new story, The Death Trap of Dr. Nefario. When I get $5000, we'll go back to business as usual: absolutely free content five days a week.
Thanks for any contribution you can make. Donations via the Amazon Honor System are completely anonymous, so if you're embarrassed about not being able to toss in a fifty, that's the way to go. There is no service charge to you for either Amazon or PayPal. Eileen
