As you can see by the email below, there were only 3 donations received from
the Ad campaign on the owasp.org website totalling a whopping $220 USD ($20
from Charles Brooks $100 from Tom and $100 USD)

I don't know what to say more that it was a massive failure, I'm very
disappointed/sad and I think there are important lessons to learn from this
(and yes I take responsibility for it since it was my idea in the first
place ( you can blame this failure on me))

My view is that we now need to pull the plug asap on this one, anybody

I'm not sure how much better we could had made the Ad campaign, but at least
we got some good 'a personal request by...' quotes

Btw, Who is Charles Brooks? We should get him to the Summit!

Hi Kate/Alison

Can you send me a list of the Summit donations we received from the
website's 'personal request' banner ad? At the moment I'm only aware of two
(mine and Tom's)

Please include name and amount,


Dinis Cruz
