I gave this story a +1 FP because it brings up the point of supporting kuro5hin through product sales.
Waht if we were to set up a storefront, as a part of kuro5hin, which carries products made by it's users? A percentage of sales could go to kuroshin.org to support it's operation (a.k.a. rusty's lunch money). An auction site would also be an option.
If we were to offer products created by the users, we could perhaps vote on what should and should not be showcased.
I would be interested in people's comments on this idea.
