The fundraiser to sequence Jay Lake’s cancer is in its final hours. We’re hoping to reach the $50,000 goal level, which will unlock a cookbook with recipes from authors and friends of the Lake family. The book will be released as a free ebook in conjunction with the fundraiser, but there are also plans to print physical copies to benefit a charity for grieving children, so I really hope we can unlock this final goal.
As a bonus, Tobias Buckell will also shave his head if we reach $50,000. I think we can all imagine the glory and wonder of Toby with a shaved head. Surely this is worth $50,000 all by itself. Let it not be said that we have not entertained you!
