If you're a photography junkie who absolutely loves wiling away time on the popular photo-sharing social network, Instagram, chances are high that you've seen a picture or two of today's United States president election ballot. However patriotic these pictures may be, whether they're sporting a red, white and blue color scheme or not, it's likely that the simple act of posting a ballot picture could result in a misdemeanor in your state of residence.
The numbers are in from Wednesday's Indie+Relief charity effort to raise money for the Haiti rescue organizations. Developers of Mac and iPhone applications offered to donate 100% of the revenue they get from the sales to their respective charities that are assisting the humanitarian efforts in Haiti. Thanks to all of you who bought participating apps on Wednesday, Indie+Relief was able to raise $143,000 in just the 24 hours it was running for.
By now you probably know about the devastation in Haiti caused by the recent earthquake, and their people's desperate need for supplies. Celebrities and politicians are doing what they can to encourage citizens to help. Now software developers are jumping on the bandwagon, offering to donate the proceeds of various iPhone and Mac apps sold on Wednesday, January 20th (tomorrow) to aid in the Haiti relief efforts. The project started as a collaboration between developers Garret Murray and Second Gear. Since then, several other developers have signed on, and the list now includes more than 130 different apps for iPhone and Mac.
