Stay Tuned for Reason's Webathon-Telethon, Today From 2-4 pm ET!

As we have been reminding you these past two days, we are in the midst of our annual week-long fundraising Webathon, in which we ask you, dear readers, for a little tax-deductible scratch to support the 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation that makes our journalism (and much else besides) possible. As the graphic over at the top right of this page illustrates, we are nearing 20 percent of our goal of netting 800 donations, for which you can receive everything from a free gift subscription to a lunch with Nick Gillespie to your very own personal tile at Reason's new L.A. headquarters.

And starting at 2 pm ET today, you can watch and contribute to a possibly gruesome experiment in technology, transparency, and free-range ad-libbing, as we launch our first-ever Webathon Telethon! Here's how it will work:

Come back to this space beginning at 2 to watch a live-stream of myself, Nick Gillespie, Kennedy, and a series of Reason all-stars talk about our work, our future projects, and our dreams. WHILE WE ARE ON AIR, and even before, we are happy to take on, read, ridicule, and/or pantomime any and all questions and messages you would like to share with our group audience. You can tweet your questions & comments (preferably while indicating your giving level!) to our @reason account; do likewise at our Facebook page, or send us an email at telethon@reason.com.

See you in a half-hour!

Editor's Note: We invite comments and request that they be civil and on-topic. We do not moderate or assume any responsibility for comments, which are owned by the readers who post them. Comments do not represent the views of Reason.com or Reason Foundation. We reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason at any time. Report abuses.

    I want you to hold up today's USA Today to confirm that this is being done live and not on tape delay like Stossel. And no lipsynching.

    "...Reason's new L.A. headquarters"

    The perfect charity

    I have a question: why is Warty still allowed to post here?

  • ||

    I want to know this too. Seriously.

  • ||

    I didn't ask the question as a joke. I really want to know. Of course, I should ask the same question about myself.

  • ||

    Yeah. Unlike you, I've never been cussed at by a contributor. Yet.

  • ||

    I was? Refresh my memory. I only remember this.

  • ||

    Terry Michael counts, you dick. Stop othering him.

  • ||

    Oh, you mean when he sent me this:

    "You are just a garden variety idiot. It is stunning how disgusting you are, whoever you are, hiding behind your cloak of anonymity."

    Good times. I like being a garden variety idiot. And being stunningly disgusting, too. But my cloak is a Cloak of Charisma, damn it!

    Kerry Howley,

    I occasionally win a thread, and when I do, I don't do it like Episiarch did, and it's not your place to award threads anyway.

    I'd hate to think I was competing to win that.

    Seriously!

    ...besides, Ruthless won the thread.

    I thought this was quite choice. -D

  • ||

    Oh, Ken.

  • ||

    Ken was a cunt even then. Imagine that.

  • nicole||

    Sad. You totally won that thread. And I miss Kerry.

  • ||

    Two words: Custom Monocle giveaways.
    Three words.
    Four words actually: HampersandR Branded monocle giveaways.

    The greenbacks will flock like geese.

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

    Will there be cake?

  • ||

    "We were told there would be punch and pie?"

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Can I have a kidney? Kidney donations were better when Postrel was in charge.

  • Bardas Phocas||

    There is no doubt that I will donate -- eventually.
    I'm just waiting for the Reason staff to grovel more.

    I do this with my alma mater. I don't really care about the funding of a government subsidized higher educational dinosaur institution, but getting the fundraisers to squirm and agree lapdog like to my stupid utterances (which my useless family and friends refuse to do) is worth a check for few thousand.

  • sarcasmic||

    OMG they wrote a book?!?

  • sarcasmic||

    Douche of the day?

    Olbermann much?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    That second window at the bottom makes me wonder if this is a webchat. Can they see me right now?

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

    yes.
