Why should I pay?

The Friends of DD membership model is a simple way for readers to support the work that goes into creating DD. While DD makes money from ads, transitioning at least partially to a member-funded model helps reduce the reliance on advertising.

The generosity of Friends of DD allows me to add ‘premium’ features over time (see below) without creating a two-tier system that would restrict access for those who don’t want to or can’t pay. It’s a model inspired by Tim Carmody’s Unlocking the Commons approach.

What do I get?

1 / DD Index
You’ll get access to the Dense Discovery Index: a searchable catalogue of all previous issues of DD. This is a great way to find forgotten items or simply browse your favourite categories. Here’s a little preview.

2 / Friends discounts
Friends of DD find regular discount codes in their newsletter. These are visible to Friends only and provide discounts on books, magazines, artwork, apps and other items featured in DD.

3 / Publisher updates
You will also get infrequent ‘behind-the-scenes’ updates from me (Kai) about life as a full-time publisher.

How do I manage or cancel my membership?

Easy. After signing up as a Friend of DD you will receive a link to a member portal where you can change the details of your subscription or cancel it any time. (Don’t worry, you won’t need to create an account.)

Can’t locate the email? Request a new link here.

That’s it?

Yep. If you have any questions, just send me an email.

Thanks for even considering becoming a Friend of DD! I feel incredibly lucky and grateful to have readers like you. 💌

Kai, Publisher/Editor
