For us to be a community we need to be invested in the community. Stephan's request for donations is an opportunity to do just that. Not in the sense of buying a part of a business but in the sense that I can be part of making something bigger than myself thrive. The payoff, beyond the obvious, is that the more we invest in this project the more it can do for us. And that is the really cool stuff because that is when the surprises happen; the unexpected, unplanned, unforseen outcomes of synergistic processes. At this time Stephan and the others who have created and run this forum are paying to run it and are not making money off of this enterprise. By donating money we help support Stephan and the others who have already done so much for us. I am not ina position to give anything now. Instead I have committed to donating at least $100.00 over the next year. Be creative. Think about what you have gained from this forum. What is it worth to you to keep this going and to help it grow? Warmly, Angus

Thanks Angus

Angus,

Thanks for your support and words!

As with all of our members, whether they are new or old, as well as all you silent visitors out there, I would like to thank you all on behalf of the whole team here at Deeper Blue for you continued support interest.

Our freediving section dates back to 1996 and it hurts me to have to turn to our readers to ask for donations - but they are just that, a way to pledge your support for us...we're not going anywhere, we're not a "dot bomb" or whatever the phrases that have come out of the internet revolution. We are a totally grass roots effort and every time there is a post or a new visitor I still get excited (admitedly it means i'm excited several times a minute with our current traffic!) and rest assured we are working on some very cool things in the future that by pledging anything from $5 to $5 million will help us achieve...the only hint I will give at the moment is the World Championships are in Ibiza at the end of the year and we hope to be doing some cool stuff around that...

Anyway, thanks for all your posts and visits and I know that I certainly look forward to seeing you all on a regular basis for many years to come!
