and thanks, isaac, for getting the ball rolling...

> From: "Isaac Forman" <isaac at bigtrip.org>
> I propose that we run a live trial of Google's AdSense on the
> evolt.org Browser Archive with a view to considering its use in other
> parts of evolt.org's online services.
> https://www.google.com/adsense/
> I suggest that we style this inclusion of contextual ads as best we
> can to suit the site. I am putting forward the Browser Archive as a
> test case because it is a prime component of evolt.org's services that
> is open to being used by internet users least likely to return
> contributions to the community. I suggest that we run a link next to
> any text ads of this type that explains what we're doing, and that our
> members do not necessarily use or recommend the services/products
> promoted in the ads.
> I would like to receive a general vote of FOR or AGAINST (+1 or -1 as
> you wish) on this proposition. Any comments are obviously welcome.
> There is no assumption that a +1 on trialling AdSense on the Browser
> Archive only can be taken as a +1 on extending a trial to permanency
> or extending it to further advertising or other areas of the site.
> Given that US residents using the program need to submit a Tax ID, I
> would recommend that funds are stored by someone outside that country.
> Exact details would be decided by the Finance group.
