With less than 36 hours to go in the effort to Open Source my software (Linux Tycoon, Illumination Software Creator, etc.) this is where we stand.
At the last tally (about 6 hours ago) the total was up to just a bit over $2,100 in contributions.
In other words: We’re over half way there… but with not a lot of time left.
This endeavor has received some excellent endorsements – folks like Jono Bacon (of Ubuntu) and Aaron Seigo (of Vivaldi / KDE). And an excellent write-up by OMGUbuntu’s Joey Sneddon.
I also spent a little time talking about the goal (and some of my thoughts behind it) in detail on today’s Linux Action Show.
So we’re in the home stretch.
The deadline I set was end of day Monday. Which, to be honest, was a fairly arbitrary deadline (I simply needed to pick some point to declare as the “end”). If we can get at least close to the goal by that point, I will gladly extend the deadline out a few days to give enough time to achieve the goal.
So spread the word. And if you were waiting till the end to contribute… now’s the time.
