Angel funding through AdSense

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 18 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

Last night at the TechCrunch party Kevin Burton came up with a new idea for funding TailRank. Previously Kevin had asked for $20 donations for access to his beta and netted $1500. This time, Kevin is asking people to put his AdSense code on their sites. If enough people get on board, Kevin will have a steady stream of income to fund TailRank development.

I’ve put Kevin’s ad code into my ad rotator, so for the next few weeks, the ads you see on my site will sometimes be Kevin’s.

Update: Kevin has the details at his blog.
