Anelok: business poll results

Three weeks ago, Dave and I asked for feedback on your preferences
for community-based financing of the Anelok project, specifically
for the remaining R&D work and then moving it towards production.

First of all, thanks to all who have responded to the poll !

The responses we received showed a high degree of generosity (all
offered donations), but the total amount offered was very small,
less than 1% of what we would need to see this through R&D.

Unfortunately, the idea of investing into the project (with a
corresponding participation in revenue) does not seem to have much
appeal - at least nobody considered that option.

This means that we will need to find a "plan B" to fund the next
stage of development.

A kickstarter style campaign may be an option, but we had hoped to
reach a more polished prototype beforehand. Any ideas would be
welcome !

I'll pitch Anelok at the CCCamp, but this is more a place for
finding developers (which we need, too) than investors.
