[ISN] Call for donations for InfoSec News
Call for donations for InfoSec News!
Back on July 1st when we last went looking for donations, we had a
little under 2% response ratio. This would have been great if we were
trying to sell you goods and merchandise, but its a little shocking
when its in regards to asking for a little money to keep the show on
the road, and improve on all the litle things everyone keeps asking
about. (News on the web, RSS feeds, digest modes)
While I REALLY understand its a down economy in everyone but a few
select eyes :) I would really appreciate it if you would check out the
link below and donate at least $1 or more. With a little over 3500
subscribers, a dollar or two would insure that InfoSec News can stay
the advertiser free and vendor neutral newsletter that many of you
depend on daily to keep abreast of security news and trends.
Thanks for your time!

InfoSec News is in a cash crunch. While we could start accepting
funds in lieu of sponsorship on the list, we would rather take
donations from subscribers to keep InfoSec News advertising free.
It's sorely needed and helps a good cause!
For $1.00 at the local diner, you can buy a bottomless cup of coffee.
At the local bookstore, a large three shot, double latte cappuccino is
about $4.00. Ideally we'd like to see every InfoSec News subscriber
sacrifice at least one or two days without his or her coffee to enable
us to buy the equipment needed to not only continue the work we've
been doing, but improve our services.
Immediate and near term improvements such as a digest version of the
list, RSS feeds of InfoSec News and other crucial security mailing
lists, and archives of past articles for download to run searches
A donation of $1 to $4 isn't a lot when you consider the work done
behind the scenes here, such as dealing with Microsoft SMTPSVC,
bounced mail, and dead addresses. Its no small feat finding,
filtering, formatting, and analyzing the news stories that more than
3500 information security, homeland defense, and open source
intelligence professionals depend on a daily basis.
Through PayPal we can accept donations in the following currencies:
U.S. Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Euro's, Pounds Sterling, & Yen.
Using Amazon's Honor System, you can use your credit card without
retyping it if Amazon already has it on file. Amazon keeps
approximately 15 percent of each donation.
If you don't trust either one of them, the mailing address here is.

Thank you for your consideration!
