Meme: paypal skzbrust $2-$5|
For artists and cons, using paypal is an excellent idea. And I'm *not* particularly tech-savvy and I've been hearing about paypal for years. We've been using it for MythCon for some time now -- as you know, Anne, it's in a different place every year, the organizers need to set up accounts for the registrants where they can get the money immediately instead of it having to filter through the treasurer, so they can put deposits on facilities, etc. etc. As you wrote about last month, many of our best and most beloved fantasy/scifi writers are far from wealthy. And for the extremely huge amounts of joy they bring me, I would happily give them money through paypal! I have a theory that we pay for things we can't do -- whether that's fixing cars or computers or minds or broken toes or whatever. With authors, I am paying them for writing things I would never have thought of myself. Seems a fair trade to me.
