As many of you know, I've spent the last couple of years writing
articles for IBM developerWorks in addition to leading the development
of the Gentoo Linux free software project.
What you may not know is that my IBM dW articles -- sold to a media
company which in turn resells them to IBM for a profit -- have been my
sole source of income over the last couple of years, and this source
now appears to be drying up.
Unfortunately, changes in IBM developerWorks' production schedule have
put me in a very precarious financial situation. Since I can no longer

employment or contracting opportunities where my expertise could be put
to use. The work need not be prestigious, nor does the pay need to be
extravagant. If you know of any possibilities, please contact me at
Alternatively, if any company or companies would be willing to pay my
salary or a portion of my salary so that I could work on Gentoo Linux
full-time, this would of course be ideal. If you're able to assist in
this way, please email me.
Please note that the "Make a donation" link on our Web site at
http://www.gentoo.org allows you to donate funds to assist with
development-related hardware expenses, bandwidth costs and expenses
related to our .org presence at the LinuxWorld Expo 2003 in New York
City. I encourage you to donate to our developer expense fund if you are
able and willing.
Also, anyone who wants to use the "Make a donation" link to send money
to *me* personally must clearly indicate this in your donation comment.
Any donations without a "for Daniel Robbins" comment will be placed into
our normal development expense fund.
Chief Architect, Gentoo Linux
