Joey's kickstarter

My brother Joey (yes, he who does all the of behind the scenes stuff on this blog) is running a kickstarter program!  He's only asking for $3,000 to make an already awesome piece of free software user friendly.  If you like the idea of Dropbox and clouds but would rather use a freeware version that doesn't lock you into doing things the corporate way, Joey's app is just what you're looking for.

We'll be donating shortly, and I hope you will too.  He has until June 12 to reach his goal, but I'd like to see him funded by the end of the day.

(He's also looking into the recent sporadic downtimes.  Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.)

WooHoo! Funded on the first day! 136 backers and $3500+ of a 3000 dollar goal. I think a couple of my friends pledged (I'll have to look), as did I. There might be something to this kickstarter thing... hmm... :P

Shannon --- Thank you so much for donating (and spreading the word!) I've been blown away by the response too, but I suspect it has nothing to do with my blog post and everything to do with his linux cronies. :-)
