Ewww... so there's coffee grinds and meat juice everywhere on the CS new corporate structure. Yuk! I'm not eating that.

I want to let people know the conversation going on about CS becoming a Corporate entity, having venture funds invested by folks closely tied to ebay and facebook and the move away from a non-profit model. If you think that a site like CS needs independence rather than pop-up ads, a two-tiered membership system and other marketing initiatives I suggest you check out that group. If you are just curious, check it out.

And if you are skeptical, check out the Guardian article about it:
