Hanging out with
Kelly we started
discussing ways to make money on the web, or more specifically, with
Mark and I are both programmers but with the upswell of the Open Source
movement, it's getting hard to actually sell software. The only way to
really make money in Open Source is service. Both Mark and I write

But since we give the software away, how to we make money from it? Well,
hire us to install, or adapt the code for your particular project. Sure,
if you have the time or the expertise you don't have to hire us, but with a
shortage of time or expertise, we're available.
Or by making this available I can become a well known webcelebrity and get
asked for talks and seminars (yea, right).
But making money off a website isn't straightforward, nor easy. And I'm not
expecting to make money (at least, directly) off this site. Indirectly,
yes. But not directly.

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
