I'm excited to let you know the ODE stickers and t-shirts have been designed and ordered and are on their way to us--which means they will be on their way to you very soon! Thanks for being so patient on the swag front.
In further good news, most of the site updates to ODE have been made. We are in the process of moving the site over to more robust servers and hope to have that done by March 31st. Once that happens we'll be ready to start the public beta--which means if you don't have an ODE account now, you will be able to have one very soon.
Thanks again for your support--this project would not have been possible without you.
Thanks to all of the support on the KickStarter, Open Design Engine (https://opendesignengine.net) v0.2 development is under way. Little Lines (our developer) is about to start work on one of the more critical administrative features, the Open Source Licensing Plugin. This plugin will enforce the requirement that all hosted projects need to declare an open source license to receive free hosting. In the spirit of open development, we'd like to get feedback on how we think this will work. Please take a moment to look at what we are planning. The notes on the feature can be found here:https://opendesignengine.net/issues/12
If you have any comments or suggestions, just leave a comment below and I will do my best to address them. Thank you,
We'll have more coherent updates later with news about how the site is growing, information on how to log onto the site (for those of you who earned early access accounts) as well as more details on when the rest of the rewards will be distributed.
For today, just know we could not be more excited by all the support you have shown for this idea, and that we are super excited to have all of you as new members of the ODE (and Mach 30) extended family.
WE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!!!!!!
We are so close! From where we are sitting we can almost see all the new open hardware projects just waiting to be hosted on ODE.
But we aren't there yet.
In the next 27 hours we need to raise another $850.
That might be a lot for one person, but if each of you, our existing supporters, were to give an additional $6. We'd be done.
Perhaps a bit more realistically, if just 34 of you were to increase your pledge by $25, or were convince a friend to make a donation of $25, we'd cross the finish line as well.
You've come this far with us--please help us complete the final push!!
Can't wait to start handing out your rewards on the other side of the finish line!
