Adam and Rohit, what would you think of setting up FoRK in the Amazon
Associates program. "FoRK" would get 5 to 15% of all book purchases by
members. We'd need to someone to set-up a Web page with a few FoRK
favorites, and then we would each modify the URL in the
process of buying books in order to credit FoRK.

My guess is that the total purchase of books by FoRKers is
quite high. I've spent $100 a month on books there for the last 2
years, which would have been about a $240 contribution to the "FoRK

I would suggest we use the money to buy alcohol at occasional get
togethers (like the recent one in SF), but we could just as easily give
it all to the Tim Byars fund.
