John is doing something daring indeed with Daring Fireball: asking for you to support his efforts. Even though I was given a key awhile ago (I purposely changed some details and flipped them around so as not to give any hints away), today I bought the t-shirt. The color grey, it's just so hot! 🙂

I hope that enough of you cough up a few bucks and join. John writes well, and has a mind to match. It'd be a pity to lose his voice from among the few capable of his level of entertainment, insight, humor, and tact.

  1. John said that his site will still be free. To quote;

    It is essential to note that Daring Fireball is and will remain a free web site. New articles and the complete archive are available to everyone, free of charge. This is a good thing - it's the way of the web. Writers who wish to charge everyone who reads their work would do well to considering other media.

    So I doubt we will lose him, but he would be highly hindered.

  2. He also said that he'd have a hard time devoting the time and effort he does now to the site. I'm not saying he'd take his site down and go home: I'm saying he'd publish even more sporadically than he does now:

    I've been treating it as such as best I can, to the detriment of my income and career, and that course is simply no longer sustainable.

    In other words, the amount he publishes now is not otherwise sustainable.
