It would seem that my Startsomegood.com project for helping the Unemployed is starting to gain some traction. Our first corporate Donator not only donated to the campaign, but decided to add an extra reward to my project.
For anybody donating $10.00 or more, to the project for helping the unemployed, they get a free High-Performance virtual server for two months with no strings attached. That’s pretty impressive considering Nuveum (unknowingly was one of the High Performance Cloud Compute providers I was evaluating). Apparently, they were subscribers to my blog and of course in the interest of personal privacy, I didn’t know it.
Also, keep in mind my additional reward for free-tech support. This is actually a good chance for those of us who are interested in the cloud and high-performance cloud computing to see what the difference means.
It’s really not a bad deal. You get the rewards on the site + my free tech support + a free high-performance VPS with Dynamic Path Routing for donating. (I feel like I’m selling Ginsu Knives.. lol).
Kudos to Nuveum. Now we need some politicians, big corporations, unions, and law firms and doctors. I could see everyone except the politicians donating. I’d be really surprised if a banker actually donated. If a Bank actually donated, I’d give them a full page free if it was a decent donation.. but then again, I’d say it’ll be a cold day in hell before that happens… Prove me wrong.
