After a six-month break, it now appears that unpaid work for the basic income community will again move to the center of my life, having been appointed in June 2018 as the editor of a blog soon to be launched by US Basic Income Guarantee (USBIG), Inc., even as I also continue my passive search for paid gigs. (I am also poised to act as editor or manager of an academic-oriented blog to be launched sooner or later by the Basic Income Earth Network.)
I request, however, that you do notmake a pledge here in the spirit of supporting my work for the basic income community. I cannot guarantee that I will meet any kind of "quota" or even endure in my work for any set amount of time (you have now all had a chance to witness how I am prone to burn-out and bore-out), unless I again sign an official contract. In fact, I request that you do not make a pledge in the spirit of supporting any work in particular, since, after all, I am free to take up and reject whatever type of work I please, as it pleases me.
Instead, if you choose to "patronize" me, I ask that you do so more in the spirit of basic income: unconditionally (although, of course, you may cancel your pledge at any time). You may think of your donations as helping to support a sort of alternative lifestyle -- a life beyond the confines of traditional assumptions regarding jobs, careers, and self-commodification -- that a basic income might facilitate. Or you might just think of them as "tips" for work already done.
The main is point is that promise nothing specific in exchange for pledges made on this site.
