Most of you know that Slashgeo.org is managed by a team of volunteers under the umbrella of a registered non-profit organization. We aim to provide great geonews aggregation and discussion services, from the geospatial community for the geospatial community. While making billions is clearly not a goal, it would still be nice if the site was self-sufficient. Over our past 5.5 years of existence, we always favored transparency. That's why we provide our open budget. Yes, we're in the red. If you like the site, any donation is welcomed, even if it's just 5$ to help pay for the hosting fees.
I'll now need to update our open budget and our list of Top Donors, found on the right hand side of the site… I'm glad to report the guys at WebMapSolutions.com gave us a substantial donation which propel them to the 6th place of our all-time Top Donors. Thanks a lot WebMapSolutions! What they do? Their website indicates they "provide on time and on budget project programming & implementation, for custom developed rich internet map applications". Cheers!
