Sunday Soup
"Soup grants provide funding for small to medium sized projects. The grants are completely unrestrisricted and will be awarded at the discretion of the jury of Sunday Soup Subscribers. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. At the end of each month, grant applications and proposals are collected and distributed via e-mail to the Sunday Soup subscribers. Each subscriber then casts one vote as to which project they would like to fund. The application with the most support will be awarded the Sunday Soup Grant the first week of the following month. (i.e. applications collect in November will be awarded the first week in December.)"


Portland Stock
"Stock is a monthly public dinner event and presentation series, which funds small to medium-sized artist projects. Hosted at Gallery Homeland in Portland, Oregon, diners pay a modest $10 for a dinner of homemade soup and other local delicacies and the chance to take part in deciding which artist proposal will receive the evening's proceeds."

Review: Free: The Future of a Radical Price by Chris Anderson (The Observer)
Free stuff is spreading because of one fundamental difference between the bricks-and-mortar world (which Anderson calls the world of atoms) and the digital world (which Anderson calls the world of bits). In the world of atoms, each item is expensive to produce and distribute; in the world of bits, it costs close to nothing. This has all sorts of consequences. Pricing models become infinitely variable. Copying costs almost nothing, so piracy mushrooms. People can create stories, songs and movies and distribute them to other people, gratis.


Priced to Sell: Malcolm Gladwell reviews Free by Chris Anderson (The New Yorker)
"Free is just another price, and prices are set by individual actors, in accordance with the aggregated particulars of marketplace power. 'Information wants to be free,' Anderson tells us, 'in the same way that life wants to spread and water wants to run downhill.' But information cant actually want anything, can it?"
