A few notes about the BSD Fund Visa that was mentioned in the show:

When you sign up, some money goes directly to BSD Fund. At time goes on, income is divided between Linux Fund and BSD Fund based on the number of cardholders because of the privacy rules. The first BSD Fund Visa revenue has been used for a BSDCan 2010 sponsorship!
