File sync tool is a hit on Kickstarter

Joey Hess has started a Kickstarter project: git-annex assistant: Like DropBox, but with your own cloud. Joey's existing git-annex is a tool for managing files larger than git can currently easily handle. The Kickstarter project is for adding Dropbox-like file watching, to make it useful for people who don't want to take the extra step of committing files to git.

Anyway, the project is now almost 200% funded, but there are still a few opportunities to put in $100 and have Joey set priorities to "please you right out of the box by supporting exactly what you need." Can't beat that.
