up until now, our only plan has been voluntary donations

it would be nice to keep it that way, but we also need a "plan b"

perhaps charge for meo accounts?  it would certainly be easy to rationalize

a buck a month times a thousand accounts and there's your co-lo costs

another idea is domain hosting for members -- i'd move my personal and
business domains in a flash, if i thought the service was even
semi-permanent (but not if it's dismantled next month -- i need a bit more

forty members at 25 bucks a month and boom, as john madden would say

in any case, we haven't nearly tapped "plan a" (donations) enough

by the way, dan, your announcement about chilisoft to member account
holders was a great summary of where we stand --

   For those of you who don't know, evolt.org provides this
   (what i think is great) service for free to all of you to learn and
   play on, asking nothing in return. evolt.org also has no
   advertisements on our website, within our mailing lists, or
   on *YOUR* websites. In fact, just about the only way that evolt.org
   raises money is by donations from our members.

let's move this type of advocacy up from meo to weo and make it easier to
find than it is now
