Selling Out (sense 1 and sense 2)

1. I’m sold out of the limited, handmade edition of the S.T.Demon boardgame. Hooray! and thanks to everyone who pre-ordered. The games are shipping out today, and a machine-made, more economical edition is on the way. Full digital download forthcoming.

2. Also, I’m experimenting with ads again. In the past, I’ve found contextual ads (e.g., Google AdSense) unsuitable for this site, since most of the pages here feature non-mainstream ideas that share keywords with exploitative commercial ventures. A page about radical body image pulls in ads for plastic surgery. It doesn’t jive.

At the same time, there are plenty of businesses I would be happy to promote, and text ads really don’t offend me. This set-up (AdBrite), can be moderated, so I’m giving it a trial run. I’m interested to know what you think about these ads.

Incidentally, I set the starting ad rate super cheap, so if you have $3 and want to promote your zine or personal site, this week is your week!
