Observe: Earlier than beginning this week’s intro, I need to emphasise that I’m not an neutral observer of at present’s information.

Thanks to everybody from Apple who supported this, particularly Ted Kremenek and Tom Doron, who’ve been a pleasure to work with at each stage. Sure, that is vastly necessary for our challenge, but it surely additionally feels important for Apple. The group has been asking for extra exterior assist, and if this isn’t what we’ve been asking for, I don’t know what’s.

The extra monetary assist that this brings can also be crucial to the challenge. Our sponsorship earlier than at present was (and nonetheless is!) vastly appreciated. Nonetheless, the time this challenge calls for of us means we confronted some troublesome choices about its future. Including Apple’s monetary assist on prime of our current group, company, and infrastructure assist ensures the provision and stability of this challenge. We’re right here to remain. It doesn’t imply our funding is full, however we are able to relaxation a lot simpler at evening.

I’d additionally prefer to thank everybody locally who supported our web site in any option to get us so far.
