Segment Two- Funding The Revolution The Next Step in creating a political movement

We are happy to announce that we have in our hands incorporation papers for both the American Open Technology Consortium and GeekPAC.

The AOTC has passed muster with the State of Illinois as a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. We are still waiting for final approval of NF ststus from the IRS. GeekPAC has likewise been incorporated as a corporation in the state of Illinois and papers have been filed with the Federal Elections Commission. Approvel from the feds is pending.

We have been informed by legal council that we can begin to collect funds for both organizations, as long as we tell people about he pending status of each organization. WE ARE THEREFORE officially beginning our fundraising campaign.

The AOTC and GeekPAC are sister organizations that have two distinct roles in affecting change in our very political world. To understand the roles of each, please visit the web sites for each group. http://www.aotc.info and http://www.geekpac.com

As the kick off to get the program started we are launching the:

Tell Ten Friends Campaign

We ask that you tell 10 of your friends and associates about the AOTC and GeekPAC and the need to contribute to BOTH organizations. Also ask them to Tell Ten Friends of their own. This will make the AOTC nd GeekPAC grow like an organic entity, like a political virus.

It is important that people contribute to both organzations, if they can legally do so. ONLY US voters may contribute to GeekPAC. Anyone may contribute to the AOTC, even our friens from around the world. Donation forms are located at http://www.aotc.info/joinhelp/joinform.html for the AOTC, and http://www.geekpac.com/joinhelp/joinform.html for GeekPAC.
