Come on people, pay up! Wow! That proves that Jason has a lot more readers than I thought and that people don't want to pay. Weird. Suggestion to Jason: sell t-shirts and other swag and provide subscriber only stuff like Daring Fireball does.
Looking at the numbers, less than 1/3 of a percent of my current average monthly unique visitors contributed to kottke.org...that's less than 1 in 300. I expected more than that, but I think it's difficult to "sell" media in an environment where people are increasingly not paying directly for media.
