My name will be in The New York Times

Update: 7 6 days left to get your name in The New York Times! Thanks go to Ingoal, Alexandre Juneau, and one other anonymous reader for donating via my donation link (and even more importantly, for donating at all).

You’ve probably heard about the full-page Firefox ad that will be in The New York Times and wholly funded by donations from the community. If you haven’t, you probably don’t read Slashdot, c|net’s news.com, and I’d imagine a good number of news sites, in English or otherwise.

Anyway, I was a little slow on the uptake myself, and have only just made my donation (of USD30) that goes towards a one of my favorite causes. If you’re a student, you can get your name listed for just USD10.

If you’d like to make a donation, and if you go through my donation link, I’d be branded a Community Champion and get some extra perks (best of which is a free Firefox t-shirt signed by the Firefox crew).

C’mon, be a part of Firefox users’ ad in The New York Times!

By the way, would a US resident kindly inform me when the ad is taken out? I’d like to buy a copy of it for keepsakes. Would have to go hunting for a copy.

Well, if you log in to your SpreadFirefox.com account, the newspaper graphic on the top right links to your donation link. You should see a “user=47” where 47 is replaced by your SpreadFirefox.com ID.

Hey, that’s a good point … will the ad also run in the NYT’s overseas rag, the International Herald Tribune?

I believe that since you’ve donated (me too!) you’ll be on a mailing list and get a message before the issue comes out.
