Atlas Kickstarter a SuccessOver 3500 people contributed $446,907 toward a $250,000 goal to fund the advertising budget for Atlas Shrugged, Part III: "Who is John Galt?" If you go to the site and make the effort to load the full list, you can see all the names. In addition, if you click on a name, you can see whatever profile they uploaded to Kickstarter. Often, that is at least an avatar. While the vast majority of contributors are anonymous, many do announce their Objectivism with appropriate semata.

Of course, I am there (near the bottom), but you will also find RoR writers Robert Malcom, Kate Gladstone, Merlin Jetton, and Michael Stuart Kelly. A few more may be in there... I smiled to find one other person whom I know from another walk of life.

The list is in chronological order. Consequently, at at the top is the roster of early supporters who themselves have kickstarted tens, even hundreds, of other projects, including this one though they may not be Objectivist or even "objectivish" at all.

This direct link will take you to the Atlas Shrugged pages of Kickstarter.

Or go to www.Kickstarter.com and look for Atlas Shrugged. You can also go to the Galts Gulch discussion board (http://www.galtsgulchonline.com/) and find the Movie site via the top menu bar. And the movie has a separate URL - http://www.atlasshruggedmovie.com/ They will put you on their weekly email list, if you want.

Just to note again that I found no easy way to read the full roll of contributors until I loaded it with repetitive keystrokes.
