When we threw the 100k raffle back in November, we raised almost $1,000 for DonorsChoose.org. Since I couldn't find a direct organizational donation, I ended up funding several projects in science, culture, and special needs around the country.

Our last podcast of the year was recorded on December 11th and covers the last month or so on the sites including the charity drive/raffle and the favorites kerfuffle. It runs about an hour long, with notes inside. [more inside]
