I emailed ckshen saying that some users suggested a merger, but he has some ideas about a not-for-profit structure, which to me seems like a lot of extra time, expense, and paperwork. He also said something about public domain, but I wouldn’t have anything to do with a site that wanted me to turn over my copyrights (maybe that’s not what he meant). Whicih reminds me, I need to update the terms of service.
My feeling is that there’s no significant profit to be made, so the less overhead and complication the better. It’s not very time-consuming, I put the site together and have been running it on my coffee breaks. It’s cheap to operate and in the long run maybe the Google ads will make it pay for itself.
