A message from our founder, Jonathan Taylor:
PacketChat is a brand new startup. I have a full-time day job, and work on this nights and weekends. I think we've got a great idea, and we've made a few working radios, but progress has been slow, and urgency is on the rise. The solution still needs a lot of stabilizing work in software, firmware and hardware, to be ready for prime-time. We incorporated as a business to get serious about it, because we really believe the community will benefit. You can help us make this dream a reality by donating to PacketChat.
Please understand, I'm not selling stock. This is not an investment, nor is it a way for you to become a part-owner of my company. This is basically a "T-Shirt and knick-nacks" style fundraiser via PayPal. It's how we raise just enough money to cover the costs of materials, skilled labor, manufacturing and overhead to make these radios, and the PacketChat dream, a reality.
Second-- do you have skills we'll want to hire for very-modest pay? Or better yet, are you super-skilled, and would simply love to put those skills to good use for a radio project that will benefit the world community with no expectation of pay or compensation of any kind? Let us know.
