Reader Survey: Should Ruby Inside Make Money for the Community?
Given the audience that Ruby Inside has, I think there's a potential for us to make some big changes in the Ruby world. I propose accepting some advertising and sponsorship on Ruby Inside, and in return I will publicly disclose the amounts and give all of the money back (minus any forced costs, such as tax) to the Ruby community as donation to Ruby-related projects, offered as bounties, and/or pay for even better articles and tutorials. Rest assured, it will not be money that will sit in a big pot waiting for decisions to be made. The choice of where the money will go will be influenced by Ruby Inside readers, naturally.
Of course, you may be totally against the idea of having advertising / sponsorships and other 'commercial' things on Ruby Inside. If so, you can have your say too! Below is a poll so I can gauge the general opinion of the readership.. so do vote (if voting does not work from the feed, come to the post page itself and vote with your Web browser).
