Give us your money!

As some of you may know, we’ve been operating with the help of business angels for the last eight years, but this situation has now come to a (quite foreseeable) end. However, we’ve struck a deal for the coming year with our awesome hosting partner that allows us to … well. not pay hosting, and instead work on Soup.

And the first thing we’re gonna do is generate some revenue. We tried it for a bit by placing ads, but feedback was basically “please let us try and give you money first” - well, here we are :) asking you for money. Not to pay hosting (that’s taken care of for the next 12 months) or acquire hardware (we’re kinda sorta OK on that end), but to actually continue developing Soup further.

There are a lot of nice and very capable people that have offered to work on Soup, but without a minimal amount of compensation this would basically be slave labour. Well intentioned slave labour, but still.

So, give us money, it will go to minimum-wage code heroes, designers and maybe some merchandise (depending on how many of you splurge on the infinity package).

What we are planning on doing with your money:

- Improve the bookmarklet and fix displaying iframes on /friends and /everyone (already in progress with the money @testkitchen users spent - thanks!)

- Improve speed

- Better blog customization

- More imports (bring youtube back)

- Maybe a twitter export?

- Mobile reader

- What can you think of? Buy a year of Soup ●UP and let us know at team@soup.io!

What we’re not planning on doing with your money:

- Ads - this is budgeted separately and has basically been paid for (a last act of good will from the investors). But the less effort we have to put into ads because you guys shower us with money, the more we can put those resources back to user oriented improvements. Also, the development cycle will profit from not having to think of everything in terms of "will this be good for ads".

Oh, and if you always wanted to work on Soup, feel like you don’t need to make a living out of it, maybe are interested in a bit of equity (long term vesting scheme), are interested in thinking about great solutions for an incredible user base, are not afraid of re-factoring old and crummy design patterns into future-proof and scalable modules, and have a solid (or at least aspiring) background in one or more of: Java/Coffeescript, RoR, twisted python, SQL, caching patterns, design, UI/UX engineering, work queues, HTML5, … then let us know via team@soup.io or join us in #soupio on irc.freenode.net (someone is hogging #soup.io…).

Blade Runner was set in 2019, 4 years from now. This isn't an outtake from the movie — it's the real Beijing.

FPÖ-Chef Heinz-Christian Strache will nicht beurteilen, ob sogenannte "Chemtrails" - laut Verschwörungstheoretikern die (geheime) Ausbringung von Chemikalien in der Atmosphäre via Flugzeugen zu unterschiedlichen Zwecken - tatsächlich existieren. "Das kann ich nicht beurteilen", sagte Strache in Interview mit "News" auf die Frage, ob er nicht wisse, ob es diese tatsächlich gebe. In der Vergangenheit hatte die FPÖ auch parlamentarische Anfragen zu diesem Thema gestellt, etwa in den Jahren 2012 und 2013 an das Verteidigungs- bzw. Umweltministerium. Gefragt, ob er an die Existenz derartiger "Chemtrails" glaube, sagte Strache: "Das ist keine Glaubensfrage. Das ist ein Bereich, wo manche diese Dinge kritisch hinterfragen." Abgesehen von den Chemtrails, deren Ausbringung laut Theorien etwa zur Beeinflussung des Wetters, zur Reduzierung des Bevölkerungswachstums oder auch für militärische Zwecke dienen sollen, höre er aber "immer wieder von anderen Dingen. Beispielsweise beim Klimawandel, bei dem Wissenschaftler zuletzt wieder zu völlig anderen Schlussfolgerungen als den heute üblichen kamen." http://derstandard.at/2000010452767/Strache-will-Existenz-von-Chemtrails-nicht-beurteilen ;
Werner Altnickel ficht das nicht an. „Man darf nicht vergessen, wer alles bei der Vertuschung mit im Boot ist“, sagt er und macht eine schier endlose Liste auf: UN und WHO, Geheimdienste von CIA bis BND, das Klimaforscher-Gremium IPCC, Fluggesellschaften, Politiker und Medien. Ohne deren Hilfe, argumentiert er in Umkehrung der Beweislast, ließen sich Chemtrails ja nicht geheim halten – „und dass es sie gibt, habe ich ja mit eigenen Augen gesehen“. Der Wetterbericht meldete für den 5. März übrigens auch ein heranziehendes Tief, das sich später am Tag über Oldenburg mit zunehmender Schleierbewölkung bemerkbar machte. Kein Wunder, glaubt Altnickel: „Der Wetterdienst steckt auch mit drin.“ http://www.greenpeace.org/austria/de/themen/klima/hintergrund-info/Verschworungstheorie-Chemtrails/?gclid=CNWc2YX-ncYCFcbnwgod7W0AKg
