Dear Calyx Institute supporters !
I want to give a quick update on the stickers, buttons and t-shirts that we owe you:
There has been a slight delay in getting everything printed up.. Everything has been ordered and paid for and we are currently waiting for the T-shirts to arrive and then we will begin the process of sending them all out.
I just wanted to let everyone know what’s going on and to reassure you that your gear will be on its way ASAP !
In the mean time, please follow us on twitter @calyxinstitute or follow us in facebook at https://www.facebook.com/calyxinstitute
There are only 6 days left in our fundraising campaign – Can you help us reach a scaled-back goal of $100,000 ? If you can donate a second time, or get your friends to donate or spread the word that would be a great help !
Thanks for all your support !
No matter what happens we are continuing to move forward
I have just taped an appearance for “On The Media”, one of National Public Radio’s fastest growing programs, heard on more than 300 public radio stations. On the Media will air this weekend, see http://www.onthemedia.org for schedule
Or for the impatient, you can hear the interview at:
To all supporters of The Calyx Institute:
Let’s face it, the original video I made for this project was really terrible. I knew that, but I was rushing to get this page up on the day the CNET article came out.
Today, I updated the video with a new more professional produced version. Please check it out !
This is actually a rough cut and was not supposed to see the light of day. It’s still pretty rough mostly because it contains clips of my original bad quality video.
However this new video is several orders of magnitude better than the original one.
This might be a good time to send the link out to people because the video is much better and gives more background.
There are 44 days left to reach our goal, which means we need to bring in roughly $21,000 per day if we are to meet it – if that is going to happen we need a lot more visitors.
I’m going to do some National press soon and hopefully that will help to get the word out.
Thanks so much for all your support !
I will be giving a talk in San Francisco this Thursday 4/26 entitled “Redesigning Privacy” at TheGlint – http://theglint.com/nicholas-merrill-redesignin... If you are in the area, please RSVP and come by !
