I am excited to announce that our Kickstarter fund raising page "Push the FreedomBox Foundation from 0 to 60 in 30 days" has just hit $60,000 25 days early! The donation that pushed us over the edge came from Blaine Cook, the former lead architect for twitter, which is a nice vote of confidence, but we would like to take a moment and send our thanks out to all of the people who have helped contribute to this great drive, and encourage everyone else to take a look.

We have been honored by the level of support for the project and the interest expressed by people from communities around the world. There is a lot of work ahead and it is a great feeling to know how many people there are pushing along with us. On that point, keep your eyes here for more information about the project's organization and immediate plans. That and other FAQs should be up on the foundation's site later today.
