Hypothes.is friends!

99% of our rewards are out.  The last round of stickers went out on Friday.  Just a few rewards remain to be sent--to the top donors--we were short a few things. Thanks for your patience!

We had an extraordinary workshop several weeks ago.  This was an important step for us in getting great design thinking from key leaders in reputation design.  Nearly 50 leading thinkers from Reddit, Stackoverflow, Ebay, Google as well as some of the most cited academics in the field came to San Francisco to help us.  We've put together a highlight reel from it.  Here it is:

Many of the rest of the presentations are also visible on our YouTube channel.

We have a request.

Just today, Hypothes.is applied for the Knight News Challenge, one of the largest funding programs for technology projects in and around journalism.  Over the next several months they’ll be awarding a total of $5M to a number of technology projects that propose innovative approaches to solving information and media problems.

We think we’re an excellent fit for this opportunity—but as part of the selection process, they’ve asked that we solicit comments from our supporters on their tumblr site, to help show how many people are behind our concept.

The link is here:

If you’d be willing to take a minute to lend your voice, we'd really appreciate it.

Thanks so much for your ongoing support!

      For an on topic comment: very curious to see anything from the draft design for the system. When do you think we'll be able to sneak a peek?

      Hi, I was a bit late to pick up my reward in the mail. It arrived 2 weeks ago. It unfortunately has now been returned automatically. :( Is there any way in which it can be traced and re-sent? I'm in Stockholm, Sweden. Hope it's not too much trouble. Looking forward to finally receiving my Hypothes.is messenger bag.
