It happened. Alf Rustad donated the missing 356€ which broken the magical barrier of 9000€ in the Nepomuk Fundraiser I started nearly three months ago.
While the actual goal – securing long-term funding for Nepomuk – has not been reached yet this is a great opportunity to thank Alexander, Alvar, Andreas, Andre, Andrew, Angelo, Anton, Antonio-J, Ardy123, arkub, Baltasar, Bernd, Bernhard, Calogero, Carl, Ceferino, Christopher, Christoph, Claude, Cristiano, Daniel, David, dunkelschorsch, Eduard, Efthymia, Elias, the two Enriques, Fabio, Felix, Florian, Francisco, Friedhelm, Fux, Gael, Giacomo, Giorgio, Guillaume, Günter, Hans, Han, Hartmut, Hector, Hendy, Huftis, Jaroslav, Jérôme, Jesus, Josep, Jos, Jramskov, Juan, Juanjo, Junichi, Kai, Kenneth, Kevin, Kilian, Kulomi, Leopoldo, Linopolus, Luca, Luis, Luiz, Maik, Manoel, Manuel, Marco, Marc, the three Markusses and Martins, Maxime, Mguel, the two Michaels, Mikael, Mike, Morgan, Nicolas, Olaf, Olivier, Orestes, the two Pauls, Paulo, the two Peters, Philipp, Pierre-Hugues, Régis, Robert and Robert, Rodrigo, samtuke, the Sebastians, Simone, Sören, Stefano, Steffen, Stian, tanghus, Thiago, Thomas, Thomas, and Thomas, Tiago, Timothy, Tommi, Tuukka, Ulrich, Wakeley, Xavier, Yaroslav, and all the anonymous doners for their support.

A special thanks goes to Carl Symons for his great dot article, his many tips and continuous encouragement.
Thank you also to Peter, George, Ivan, Vishesh, Christian, Andrew, Martin, and Laura for their great developer comments on Nepomuk.
And last but not least thanks for all the positive feedback on my blog articles, the translations into strange and exotic languages such as spanish :P and all the encouraging words which showed how many actually get what the semantic desktop is all about and want Nepomuk to go on and change the way we work with information today.
