I've been quietly lobbying Linux Weekly News to offer a $500 - $1000 "Supporter"-level subscription option; LWN has saved my sanity for the last two years as my conference schedule has been severely restricted.

But one problem with LWN is that they spend all their time writing and editing quality articles, instead of the boring stuff: ie. taking money from people.  The base rate finally increased this year after 8 years at $5/month (to $7), but I worry that Jon and co will look back at the years of service and lack of retirement savings and wish they'd had secure well-paying jobs like the rest of us.

After numerous monthly reminder emails and face-to-face lobbying at LinuxCon Japan, I'm giving up on "quietly" and asking your for your help.  Please: next time you comment on LWN, could you add some sig-line lobbying for the Supporter-level subscription?  Even if you have no intention of ever buying such a thing, at least you know one person will...

What Do We Want? LWN Supporter Subscription!
When Do We Want it? Before LCA 2011!
