The simple answer is yes. The purpose of the ad is to bring attention to
the iManifest initiative and to lend credibility to it. The reason that I
suggested the Wall St. Journal ad is that it is (arguably) the most
respected and influential newpaper in the U.S. In the end it will up to the
members of the iManifest initiative as to where and when the ad is placed.
In that respect, I suppose that there could be some left over from the
original $150k of seed capital. If that were the case then we would probably
use the remaining capital for other revitalization efforts.

Jeff--- Is the $150k simply to place advertisements? If so you could
probably do it for a fraction of the cost by renting a mailing list from
an industry magazine and sending a good targeted letter.

Instead of worrying or debating the future of the IBM i why not take a
more
proactive role? Join one of the iManifest initiatives in Japan, the
European Union or the U.S. One of their primary objectives is to get the
word out and get more new IBM i customers.
