I really appreciate the model and the motivation... I've lived in a different, parallel economy for the last ten years, working with the idea that we take what we need and give what we can - that's why I'm excited by donationcoder. I have been enthusiastically recommending it to friends since I discovered the site, both for what it contains (in the sense of great software and reviews), and for what it stands for (and here I mean a break from the old ways, a new way of doing business). And also: I've been reading various forums for the last few months, after staying clear of them for the first 11 years of my surfing the internet - well, it only became surfing when I got broadband a few months back, before then it was just paddling - and I must say I feel there's something different about dc, and I think that does have to do with a different ethos, a different way of doing things. Perhaps it's a sentimental idea, but I get much more of a feeling of a circle of friends, if only in possibility - that's something it could become, in a way I don't see happening on any of the other forums I'm reading.
