Blog! Maciej Ceglowski of Idle Words is following the jkottke model and looking for macropatrons. If that word doesn't sound quite right, it's worth noting that there is a particular figure being looked for:
"I want to help, but I don't have $300,000. Can I send you a smaller amount?

No. Many other worthy weblogs will welcome smaller contributions from micropatrons and mesopatrons. As an experiment in novel funding models in the blog space, I want to focus my efforts strictly on macropatronage."
Anyone have that kind of money going spare because it would be really funny if you could send it along. Might start a trend.
