We forgot to mention a funding source
In the last update I mentioned an alternative for people who would like to tweak the CDNPAL search premise, and I mentioned that we'd be open to that if it was measured against the funding the person interested contributed vs. the total funding of the project already plus the short term revenue we have.
In that last update I mentioned revenue streams including
1. renting our Dell 5600 series R710 - 36GB RAM servers until we can use them at full capacity
2. licensing our existing matured technology such as our search term bidding system.
3. the interest from gust.com firms that have reached out to us but have not yet finalized a deal to partially fund the project.
I did not mention our main source of revenue. Aside from working at day jobs as programmers we do contract programming on nights and weekends. Our rate is $100 per hour for consulting services and all the money so far has gone towards the CDNPAL search project, not us personally. If you are interested in this, you can contact us at the following telephone number for availability (424) 209-8558
So far our consulting services have been used by select Fortune 500 firms, and a massively funded Silicon Valley start up in Southern California in a late stage round. We have completed most of these weekend projects and need more at the same rate to continue funding the project as our day job income is just to cover our personal costs.
CDNPAL has made over $10,000 in the first quarter of 2012 alone in extra consulting fees, so the customers of this service so far have been the main contributors of funding rather than Kickstarter or other services.
We don't mind earning the money, so reach out to us if you want us to request fill.
