*Looks like we can use an open thread. I have been so busy this week that I haven’t read anything since On the Road really yesterday. What did I miss?
This will double as a Michigan Angel match thread. We have $500 raised on Angel match #3 in the comments, but we are just $18 short of $2,000 more in the thermometer, so we’re going to do something special.
first 5 next donation of $100 in the comments will be matched for the entire $100. And we’re going to run Angel match #4 for $400 at the same time, with matches up to $25 for that one.
At $12,500, when we finish angel match #3 with (maybe) the 5 $100 matches, and our angel puts in her $1,000, the thermometer will be at $14,000, so we would only be $1,000 way from starting the hiring process for the fellows we are funding. Fingers crossed.

Well, by the time I hit publish Anne Laurie had just published something interesting, so I’ll hold this one for a little bit.
Oh, and one more thing. We are trying to come up with a great name for our group (related to the new social media initiative) and a good, fun hashtag for our postings. I’ll be putting up a dedicated post tomorrow asking for ideas, but you can get a head start overnight, if you want. You can nominate your ideas using this form, or you can list them in this thread, or you can save your great ideas for the thread tomorrow.
The form asks for your name, but you don’t need to enter a name for this, so you can just enter your nym twice.
You do not need to be participating in the initiative in any other way in order to nominate ideas, so have at it you snarky, witty, clever people.
Totally open thread.
Update: reposting from last night when not many people saw it.
