Shawn Blanc is doing is annual membership drive. For just $4/mo you can support his writing and get members only access to his Shawn Today podcast. His writing is absolutely worth supporting and I'm a happy paying member. I don't know him personally, but I'd like to as he seems like an awesome dude.
If you read him, bump yourself up to membership level. If you don't, start now and I'm sure you'll be a member by the next drive.
