"The good news is that there are soooo many ways to help humanity that do not require money or the use of a NING network. However, there are very few ways to operate a business without payment for value. "

I thought this could seriously help the Ning platform in its server load to grow and become more scalable. Hope this helps.

Hello John, I really want to get involved in this sandbox. I have a friend that is really excited to dive in and set up my net work. There have been so many conversations about this and that. I meant to call Ning yesterday to get this answer strait from the horses mouth, but things came up.

I know that we have been told there is a 14 day free trial. Others are saying 6 months. What is the deal? I cannot afford 2 bills from Ning, at the present time.

Thanks, Jim
