For various reasons it sounds like there is a lot of demand for separating
Tor from the TBB. It would be nice if we could fund the development of
features like this. I imagine some of us would be more willing to donate
if certain features would be added as a result. I donate a fair amount of
spare bandwidth from a high speed co-located server although have never
contributed financially. I think Tor is a worthy cause though. I do
contribute to many other projects.
I also think there is potential for a relationship between the Tor project
and commercial entities. Mozilla is a good example. Something similar
could be arranged for Tor. It may be the advertisement of a Tor-friendly
product or even semi-generic hardware or tie in to a search engine. A few
projects already exist that could be commercialized in some way where a
percentage of the profits could go toward Tor development. It is probably
unwise to derive too much funding from a single entity although taking
advantage of the user base to produce a self-sustaining non-profit entity
is probably a wise move.
