A few months ago we conceived this dream and we have fulfilled it today thanks to you. Each dollar became an opportunity to change the world through data. Now it is our duty to contribute to that happening.
After years of activism and advocating for the access to information through stories with data, we decided to launch our first crowdfunding campaign in order to fund the development of our web apps.
We have found that data can have a big impact, it can raise awareness about problems that are difficult communicate. This is why we decided to open the code that has helped us before and also make it more accessible with easy-to-use tools for non-data experts.
With the money we raised, we will improve user experience. We will add more locales for common dates and number formatting and support two new languages: french and portuguese.
We will be publishing all of our campaign’s results in our website and our social networks. Also, we will publish with open license the methodology that we used in the planning and execution of the campaign so that other organizations can learn from our experience. All the information on the campaign can be found at http://kickstarter.datasketch.co
Thank you very much to those who supported us during the campaign.
