Some Light Begging

As most of you know, I’m now a full-time student with no income save for the few dollars per month the blog ads bring in (which covers hosting and anti-spam). Now I’m not in danger of starvation, but it would be nice if I could get a few quid coming in, especially now I’ve launched the podcast.

To that end I’ve set up a Patreon page where wealthy, generous people can pledge a portion of their hard earned cash to ease my burden when writing about social issues, politics, management, and, erm, polyamory and carrier bags. There’s no obligation of course but if anyone who enjoys my output on a regular basis wishes to donate, it would be much appreciated. And if Laurie Penny can get nearly £$4k per month…

    Don’t know if available now, but when I did my MBA (92) Natwest and Cyldesdale offered two year interest free loans.

    iirc it was in conjunction with AMBA

    I borrowed £25k from Natwest & £10k from Clydesdale (max they would lend me). Invested it all and made a good profit. Paid back in full last day of interest free period.

  2. Bit of shocker that Bardon couldn’t find a way to donate, given his enormous financial power, economic foresight, and mastery of all things technical.

    He is the Doctor Jonathan Miller or Larry Adler of our generation.

  3. Perhaps Bardon did contribute, but being such a retiring and modest chap didn’t want to mention it …

  4. I’m skint at the moment, but will bung a few quid in the jar when I’ve got some.

    The Patreon page currently lists 4 patrons totaling $77. How does that work, given that all the tiers are in rounded denominations?

    Oh, don’t worry about it if you’re skint: I was trying to shake down my wealthy readers (they know who they are).

    The tiers are “up to”, so they don’t exactly match,
