I've reached $3000 funding, for the next 3 months of work on git-annex.
It took my Kickstarter campaign 24 hours to reach this point! I'm amazed. Clearly distributed crowdfunding can work, when you have such amazing sponsors.
What now? My first stretch goal is a full 6 months of development on git-annex.
As I said to my Kickstarter backers earlier today,
Looking back, if I had only gotten funded for half a year, there would be so many things I'd not have been able to do. There would be no Android port, no Internet Archive integration, no Windows port, incomplete XMPP support, no screencasts walking through setting up the git-annex assistant. So, what might I accomplish if I got funded for six months more?
Hope we find out!
