Please Support BeSpacific in 2020

Dear Readers, Colleagues and Friends – Greetings and Happy New Year.

If you read BeSpacific on a regular basis and my research and knowledge discovery is useful to you, please support this site by donating $5 – or another amount, such as $10, $20, $30 – using the PayPal link on the BeSpacific Home Page.

I created BeSpacific in 2002, and have continued to provide daily research to readers, with no pay wall, for almost 18 years (via the blog, Twitter, RSS and by email subscription).

I am passionate about law and technology and the myriad ways that knowledge created by the intersection of these areas impacts our daily work, civic lives, education, government, and a wide range of professional communities of best practice.

Your contribution to BeSpacific throughout this year will assist with all the costs of hosting and maintaining my site, and the email marketing service I use to deliver daily opt-in subscription updates.

Thank you to the readers who currently support BeSpacific on a regular basis. I am hopeful that many more readers will join them and donate their support on a monthly basis.

Wishing you peace, good work, good health and opportunities to actively engage with issues that matter to you, throughout 2020.

Best regards – Sabrina I. Pacifici
