Awesome. I didn't mean to imply that you single-handedly control the budget or decision making process, I realize that's not how academic departments work.
It would also be great if some of the larger newspapers were able to chip in. They're obviously not flush with cash, these days, but they do pay for Windows licenses, SAAS productivity tools, and other tech they have to pay for. Although, that may be tricky, since I doubt they would be able to write contributions to OWS off as a business expense, seeing as they would be donations. There has to be a way to make that work though.
