1000 fans is sustainable :
I bought BardAndSoderqvist's two new books as e-books which you could say is fandom. I'd buy a new book by StewartBrand too. (I bought ChristopherAlexander in the past but not sure I can afford to buy his books on principle)
If he needed it, I'd regularly pay something to contribute to DaveWiner.
