Kevin Burton trades early access to beta for server cash

Kevin Burton is one of those entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley that isn’t yet rich. He’s starting a new company and needs a little bit of cash for more servers. So, he came up with a new idea: give early access to his beta to people who donate $20 to buy some servers. Hey, Kevin, would you go with Microsoft servers if I got you a bigger donation? He picked up a few bucks last night.
