  • No matter what the discount, it seems like some of that Perl Foundation money sitting in the bank might be put to good use here. Paying $50 to ten different people to have a go at a website seems pretty cheap even if only one of them works out. :)
    • I think folks can cough up $50 to play around with a server. Keep the grant money for something more serious and unique like paying Nick Clark to continue his mad optimization sweeps through Perl 5.
      • If they can cough up the $50, they don't need you to help them do it :)

        TPF has a lot of money. They are not in a position where they have to choose :)
    • My only concern with the TPF nano-grant idea is that it could add bureaucracy and delay and that gets in the way of the JFDI.

      To me an ideal solution would be that TPF says "We're got 10 open slots for nanogrants, first 10 people to put up something interesting gets the $50 from us." (Modulo logistics, of course) Key here is "Go do it, we'll pay you for it later."

      • The only one who can add bureaucracy is TPF. It doesn't have to be like that, though.

        Not that I really care. I think if anyone had the motivation and ability to do something, and more importantly to maintain it, they don't need someone else to set up a web hosting account for them.
