A day late, a penny short: a couple of awesome updates.

12 Jul

(further update at the end)

BearLove Good, Cancer Bad–and Mathew Inman, pretty much awesomesauce through and through: The Oatmeal blog update has some of the pictures of the money, which will be dutifully send to Charles Carreon¹ via Priority Mail.

Boing Boing has a Flickr slideshow with more pictures, and Popehat has a lovely closing remarks. Heck, there was even a mention–and earlier even an image in the homepage–at msnbc.com

It pains me that Inman may yet be penalized, tax-wise, by fulfilling his promise to his readers and donors. According to that msnbc article, he “had to fill out a bunch of tax forms.”

Ann Branson‘s own fundraising is finished–and more than double her original goal was raised, so indeed, it’s quite possible that, after all fees have been deducted, both the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Americans for the Arts will receive a thousand dollars a piece. Awesomely well played, Ann!

Here‘s Ann Branson’s own Fuck you, Charles Carreon picture–along with math and receipts for the money that actually made it to each charity’s account. The Electronic Frontier Foundation got $1,162.00 and Americans for the Arts got $1, 163.00.
