One of the things that's "shifting" relative to The Cerebus Archive itself is the relationship between the Cerebus audience -- primarily the Pledge Partners -- and Aardvark-Vanaheim Inc.
My plans to have A-V dissolve itself at the moment of my death and convert into the Cerebus Trust has foundered on the fact that anything that happens with the corporation on my death that involves transferring its assets to another entity has HUGE tax consequences. Basically, everything has to be evaluated financially and then a percentage of that goes to the Ontario government. Big hit on the proceeds from my insurance which will be A-V's primary "lifeblood".
So, now I'm trying to figure out how to keep the "on-paper" corporation alive after I'm dead while ensuring that it sticks to doing a very limited number of things. One of which would be continuing to publish the CEREBUS ARCHIVE Portfolios as a means of financing "in perpetuity" while also making sure that CEREBUS enters the public domain.
The most devoted part of your audience is really the best guarantor of your wishes being followed.
I'm trying to figure out, basically, how to make AMOC, after I'm dead, into the Aardvark-Vanaheim "government". Except, if I can make it another ten or twenty years, I think you can take the quotation marks off of there. Corporations governed on the Internet will, I think, be the rule, rather than the exception.
