We’ve instituted the tip jar as an attempt to move toward long term viability for the show. You are not, by any means, obliged to put money in there to listen to the show. We have had some requests from listeners for a way to contribute. Enter the Tip Jar.
The money will go directly to paying for the server bills. Educationbridges as a whole (of which edtechtalk is a largish part) accounts for $180 a month in server costs. For the first six months of ‘tipping’ all the proceeds will go directly to pay for the infrastructure. After that time, if there is ever more than the $180 the balance will get distributed according to the will of the community at a town hall meeting.
