Dear SeqFans, Today's NY Times has a story,
about a fairly new on-line dictionary called Wordnik (http://www.wordnik.com/)
 which "has raised $12.8 million in venture capital". 
I assume it is run by a full-time paid staff, not by volunteers. 
It is ".com", not a ".org" like us.

Thanks to everyone who made a donation to the OEIS last year.
We are hoping to build up a reserve fund, in case we have
to hire legal or editorial or technical help at some time
in the future. We have about $30K now, which is a long way 
from that, although enough - unless things change drastically - to 
cover our operating expenses for the next three years. 

Happy New Year
