I this isn't /. but I've never posted anything there so I'm gonna do so here.... I don't know about the legalities of this so if there's a problem, I'm hoping the moserators will help me out.
Anyway, I just read an article in the NY Times that's entitled "Free Software, at Least to a Certain Point" Which can be found here: http://www.nytimes.com/2002/09/23/te...gy/23LINU.html
It was a benefit dinner and at the end, the author says, a hat was passed around and they ended up with $6,000.
Hmmm, I've probably never been into one but for a benefit dinner in Manhattan... and for an organization like the FSF...
Sounds like small change doesn't it?
p.s. just posting a link that's all...
