Hmmm, sorry, the previous post should have been like this:
LWN is one of the best news sites on the net. Especially the weekly
summaries are good for people like me who do not have time to read
news every day. It is sad to see that lwn goes away.
Personally I think that you should also think a bit about "what is money".
I know it's hard for Americans to accept that money is not everything but
to become more independent of money gives you more freedom
in the long run.
At linuxfocus.org we have also during
the years 1999-2000 been thinking about running this site for profit. I am
glad we did not do that. It gives you soooo much more independence and
freedom when you don't have to think all the time about money.
If lwn wants to have a bright and long future then you need to find
ways to be cost efficient and find ways to finance your running costs
and don't depend on advertisements.
Don't get me wrong. I have donated already money to lwn and I really like
it as it is today but I believe that lwn has to change just slightly
in it's structure and it will survive, be less dependent on money and
thus be immortal.
Lwn could e.g be more a linux community activity.
