Open Up and Open Source Advertising

I am working on a new lecture series called <snip>. The series is about implementing <snip> in culture, business, art, and society.

Our first event is coming up soon in seattle and we are about to have a wide range of new content for the site. The site will be like TED. We will video tap the talks and post them online.

I am wondering how we can make this event profitable. One thought was getting sponsorship for the end of the video’s, or having ads on the site.

I was wondering what your opinions on this would be. Do you think it would help and bring the project money with ads? What would I need to do to make that profitable? and so on…

Thanks everyone,
