    Lots of "new" free ToA things on my patreon about 24 days ago

    No idea. that's between your connection, patreon.com, DNS name servers, the vagaries of the internet as a whole and just maybe Elon Musk. The site was up and everyone else got on just fine. A glitch in the matrix. Shrug.

    All this to say: we probably should get some money for our writing, but we don't. If you are employed in academia, some might argue you already get that money as part of your salary (that seems to me rather debatable). There are other benefits accrued from being read: potential citations, fame and vanity, or the satisfaction of actually having an impact on the world. None of those pay the bills, but then again,...

    Show HN: StackAid – fund 100s of open source dependencies... about 5 months ago

    This kind of looks like https://flattr.com/ but specifically for dev/dependencies. Not sure I like that there's "only" a two-month limit in which funds can be claimed, though. Some developers could be very busy or get caught up with other stuff and not hear about their accumulated funds before the "expire". Some might also think it's a phishing scam if they haven't heard of StackAid before.
  6. Professional membership software used by the web's biggest creators. Works with your website. Integrates with Stripe, WordPress, and MailChimp. Try it for free.

    It should be easier to procure a "ticker symbol" in this world with statistically millions of geniuses, and at this juncture, it would appear a proof-of-stake uniswap NFT or www.withotis.com -like entity may figure more productively in such a narrative than even a kickstarter.com or indiegogo.com .
