It's been 48 hours since I launched my grand campaign to Open Source (under the GPL) all of my software (including Linux Tycoon and Illumination Software Creator), and here's where we stand.
As of this moment we're sitting at just over the $800 mark in contributions.
Which means we're 28% through with the total time I initially set for this goal, with roughly 20% of the goal accomplished.
Not bad. Falling a bit short of the initial goal, but not a bad start.
The plan has gotten some hearty endorsements from the likes of Aaron Seigo (of KDE and the Vivaldi tablet) and Jono Bacon (of Canonical/Ubuntu), and the support/encouragement from the community has been stellar. A big, hearty thanks to everyone who has lent a hand and contributed so far.
What's really needed, at this point, is significant media coverage. The more eyes that read this, the more likely it is to be successful.
So here's what I'm asking: If you feel this project is important and worthwhile, spread the word. Twitter, Facebook, Google+... any social media. Send the links out. If there are tech/game/open source sites that you like... send them a note. Let them know what's happening. Big or small, every little bit helps.
