My project to resurrect The 9pm Edict reached the initial target on Saturday — thank you — but there’s a few minutes left, so I’m hoping that we might get something up beyond that.
Here’s how things looked as we started the day today.
The upper line shows the total commitments so far, and where that line ends up at 0847 AEST today will determine what happens in May.
The lower line shows just the cumulative subscriptions, and where that ends up will provide the starting-point for crowdfunding June’s budget.
I’ll run another Pozible campaign around the third week of May, probably ending around 21 May. That will set the production pool for June — that is, the subscriptions continuing from this campaign, plus any new subscriptions, plus any one-off pledges. However I’ll also be investigating other ways to organise the subscriptions and perhaps some commercial sponsorship.
I’ll post a brief update once the Pozible campaign finishes this morning, and a longer explainer tonight.
[Update 1110 AEST: The final total raised for the May production pool was $1082, so that’s two episodes confirmed for the month. We “only” have $304 in ongoing subscriptions, which isn’t quite enough to fund podcasts in June â€” yet. There will be further fundraising before then, so stay tuned. I’m currently feeling quite confident that I can build on this base â€” but I’ll have more on that tonight.]
