    Hey Howard, can I pledge (and then of course provide) a series of small donations over time? That will add up too.

    Hey spungey, make a note of your cumulative total in the remarks section each time you contribute and that will make sure that I notice and keep track that way. I have not consulted John on this, but it's easier to get forgiven than permission, anyhow. All help wanted and welcome! BTW, you are not pledging when you hit the "donate" button - it's PayPal and you are actually giving. This is a little different than Kickstarter would have been.

    Kickstarter is on again - read this before donating, please

    John has just announced that the Kickstarter project is on again, thanks to many of you and your "feedback". The way Kickstarter works, Synergy has to reach the threshold in order to get ANY $$$.

    from facebook:

    Congratulations, Synergy fans, you have been heard!!! Tonight this Kickstarter project WILL GO LIVE!!!

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...token=b1927e6d

    After Kickstarter.com rejected our original application and appeal, Howard Handelman and Pat Panzera formed Friends of Synergy. Brian Wendt and Dean Sigler, among others, threw a polite online hissy fit about it, and AVWeb told Everyone the bad news. Emails were sent, EAAers stepped up far and wide at every level, and somewhere in all of that hubbub Kickstarter had a change of heart.

    I received an email from a human being with a name, Callan Lamb, explaining that he "wanted to reach out and let you know that we've reconsidered your project submission...this is an incredibly ambitious and creative project that we'd be excited to see on Kickstarter."

    Kickstarter has now greatly improved their project guidelines for design and technology submissions. Since I don't know who to thank, I do know who to thank, and I will continue doing so for as long as I live.

    Super how the Kickstarter project is going (almost halfway there!). I just wrote this post on my own blog http://terrigriffith.com/blog/crowdf...nergy-aircraft
    and am pushing the kickstarter link to Facebook friends, Twitter, Google+ etc. Just putting out the call for folks to do the same. Let's make that line for a ride as long as possible!
