App.net is 5 days away from the end of their funding, but only around 50% funded, as of writing. It’s not looking good. But founder Dalton Caldwell isn’t giving up yet:
One of my friends that works at Kickstarter explained to me that projects succeed or fail based on the first and last 24 hours. For that reason, we are not making contingency plans. Rather, we are trying to put ourselves in the best position we can be for the last 24 hours of the project.
I agree that it’s not time to panic, but I think not making any other plans is irresponsible. Perhaps, though, 50% funded is good enough to begin. Who knows? It’s not vapourware, though.
