    That comment didn't annoy me half as much as her refusal to discuss questions that I and others brought up in our posts. I don't think she is a troll, I just find that slightly infuriating.

    Writing books is a really poor way to make money.

    ETA to add: I went to a super liberal school. Berkeley is all about liberalism, we were all too busy being stoned and liberal all day to care about academics.
    ok, just to set the record straight: getcrafty has been a personal and political success and given me enormous pleasure but i am barely making the hosting costs! i have never made a single cent from the site, and if i added it up, i've probably LOST money. i guess that makes me a bad capitalist but a good entrepenuer. i love to build and make things, so i do this site b/c it makes me happy and i think community is a beautiful thing.

    but alas, this conversation is getting folks upset -- it's one fo those BIG topics that gets every all worked up. how about we all take a little break, agree to disagree--and perhaps someone wants to write an article for getcrafty on the connection between capitalism and the craft community -- pro and con? cause on one-hand i think crafting can be anti-materialistic (i like this part, being a lefty at heart) -- on the other hand, it's incredibly entrepeneurial, with all these crafters starting their own businesses and trying to make $$$$, which i like too. i want people to be happy and successful, while doing the least amount of harm.
