Last week the was the best of times, and the worst of times.

We launched our citzens’ funded “superPAC to end all superPACs” on May 1. The target was $1m in 30 days. In two days we had crossed $200k. (Best of times.)

And then the servers melted. (Worst of times.)

But over the weekend, an extraordinary group of geek volunteers stepped up to help, and they’ve now rebuilt the core architecture that enables our pledge engine to work. It will scale. It will carry whatever burden we create.

So we’re ready to launch stage 2. 

At noon, close to 6 million messages to social media will hit, driving people back to the newly built site. And if we’re lucky (and the Republic’s lucky), we can restart the incredible momentum, and get to our 30 day target early. 

Please help if you can. Pledge at Mayone.US. Join the Thunderclap (before noon) here. And best of all: share this idea as broadly as you can. 100% of what we raise in this crowd-funded kickstart will go to reclaiming a democracy working for all its citizens. Help us reach for that ideal.
