BitVendor is reaching for a funding goal. Can you help?

As some of you probably remember, I'm serving as lead developer on a Bitcoin related project called BitVendor. BitVendor is a point of sale system (glorified cash register and inventory management system) for Bitcoin (find out more here). I've been involved for a few months now and things seem to be going well.

We're a small team - just three people - working hard to develop a great piece of software that does the Bitcoin community proud. But we simply had to face the fact that, working on the project part time, we weren't going to get it done anytime soon. There's a lot to do and just too little time to do it.

So we started a fund raising campaign. You can find it by clicking here.

The idea is that we'd like to raise enough money for one developer to spend the next two months working full time on completing the software while the rest of us help out where we can and when we have time. We've estimated that $7,500 is enough to make it worth said developers time and so that's our funding goal.

With any luck (and with your help), we'll reach our funding goal in the 41 remaining days. It'll be tough, but I believe we can do it. So if you want to help out a worthy project that's seeking to help the Bitcoin community, please hop on over and make a donation.

Lastly, I know in my last post I said I'd be doing a series of security related post. Unfortunately, time has been very short and I've not had time to write them up. I'll get on those as soon as possible and should have the first article posted by next week sometimes. In the meantime, I'm working my behind off on BitVendor.
