"We Did It"

App.net

Dalton Caldwell:

As I write this, join.app.net just met our 500K goal, with 38 hours left.

The project is currently hovering just beneath $700,000 with 21 hours remaining. A very real achievement for Dalton and his team.

I’ve been using the Alpha for over a week now, and I remain impressed by the service. Perhaps the edges are somewhat rough, and its interface all-too-familiar to Twitter, but such tiny complaints aside, for an Alpha, App.net is shaping up extraordinarily well.

For those interested, you can find me on App.net as @MattAlexander. Moreover, for those that have yet to secure a username, I highly recommend donating within the next few hours.
