24 Hours Left To Support Our Crowdfunding Campaign On Net Neutrality: Now With Stretch Goals

Home stretch: Less than 24 hours left
to support our net neutrality coverage »


In the last 24 hours or so, you guys came through in an amazing way to shoot us past our target goal in our crowdfunding campaign to support our net neutrality reporting. Following yesterday's amazing post from former Congressional staffer Jen Hoelzer about how much reporting like Techdirt's can make a difference in DC, there was a flood of support, which was great. There's still another 24 hours or so to go in the initial campaign and we've decided to add some stretch goals, because all the crowdfunding kids are doing it (and we can't resist the peer pressure).
The support has continued to flow in, but the more support we can get in these last 24 hours, the more we can do, and the more impact we can hopefully have in making sure that the public's voice is heard in DC and that the future of the internet isn't just decided by "DC insiders."

    Is the super-secret goal finalized yet?

    $80,000 - To avoid ever having to see the Dark Helmet thong-back bikini calendar.


    Heh. Now wouldn't that be a fair bit of incentive to get us up and over $80k? :) I like it.

    I'm somewhat confused, I'm not the only one to think that the two middle goals are in reverse order, right? It seems that a monthly Q&A would take more effort, and thus be more 'valuable', than a spreadsheet.

      No. Infographic (which is a hell of a lot more than a "spreadsheet") is a lot of work...

        Re: Re:

        Plus, it'd be way more fun to interact with backers than putting together the infographic. So if you want to punish us, contribute more!

        Re: Re:

        Fair enough, now that I think about it such a thing would take a lot more work than setting up a Q&A. Not sure why I called it a spreadsheet either, mental dictionary must have been on the fritz when I typed that out.

    Any matching funds left to unlock?

    That would certainly be a motivator for some (like me) to donate now that the goal has been met.

    Also would be interested in knowing how much to get a text ad on some or all of the upcoming net-neut (net-newt?) articles.

      When I last went to Japan I caught a newt in a net. I felt guilty afterwards.

      At this point we've exhausted the matching funds... but maybe you can convince someone else to match whatever you donate. ;)

    Stretch marks

    If the stretch goals are not met, will the campaign have stretch marks?
