The GNU MediaGoblin project is raising funds to allow Chris Webber to work on it full time for the next year. The project has done really well over the last year and a half and has come a long way. However, there's a bunch of work that needs to be done and the sooner it gets done, the better. Essentially, we're staring at a chasm between "bootstrapping the project" where we needed enough to grow a community and have something people can build on and "1.0" where it's generally usable by our target audience.
Because of that, Chris quit his job at Creative Commons to work on MediaGoblin full time in a valiant attempt to get us across that chasm.
There are a lot more details on the MediaGoblin campaign page and a movie that Chris and Deb put together that explain why and why now.
Please help fund MediaGoblin so we can get across that chasm!
Please Tweet, Dent, Facebook, blog and otherwise get the word out, too! Use the campaign url when you do. That helps a ton! Thank you!
