First Post: We got some money!

Many thanks to Equal Exchange, the worker-owned cooperative fair trade company, for giving the Data Commons Project our first big grant to fund development of the Data Commons Cooperative. They give some charitable contributions to further the creation of a cooperative economy. And we want to help build the infrastructure through which people can participate in cooperative, solidarity, sustainable, and fair trade exchanges. So it's a good match. And now we are going to buckle down and get to work!

We also don't want to forget all of the individual and organizational donors who gave to the DCP during our fundraising campaign last year. Thanks for believing in us. We are on the job.
