Sorry, that was probably not too clear. I'm not suggesting that we *don't* do a calendar. I just think that (a) it's not going to be sold in a manner another than direct interaction with members, and (b) it shouldn't be a core means of supporting the organisation financially. IMHO, we should build a core on MEO/other subscription stuff, and potentially careful corporate sponsorship, and then float the branded products and related ideas on top of that. isaac > > i could easily see us selling 100 calendars @ $10 each year to cover > > 1/12th the cost of that years bandwidth though.. > > We could also find out who is buying to support evolt.org and who > is buying > because they also want a calendar (I don't use a mousepad or > calendar FWIW). > Are we better off if people directly contribute the $10? > > And while a calendar at your desk is going to (to some extent) market the > name, there might be more efficient options (postcards/packs > distributed to > programming and design studios, etc).
