VDiff is a one man band.
I don't receive any grants or funding.
I barely make a profit.
I rely on advertising and the kind donations of climbers to meet my basic running costs (I have a real job too!).
I could set a high price for my e-books and become rich.
But then less people would read them.
Which means less people would learn how to climb safe.
Which would defeat the whole point of VDiff.
So I decided to publish the e-books on a pay-what-you-want basis, therefore making them accessible for everyone.
If VDiff built car parks, they would be free.
If I owned a brewery?
Pay what you want for beer.
Pay what you want for a flight to Patagonia.
But I don't own a car park, a brewery or an airline. I'm just a climber who wants people to be safe.
If you've learnt something valuable, please consider making a small donation when you download an e-book. Or maybe send me a nice e-mail. These things motivate me to carry on.
See you out there,
