Humble Bundle

Humble Bundle, Games, Comics, eBooks, Audio Books and More

I thought I might take a few minutes to scribe a post regarding Humble Bundle. Brian and I often talk about bundles on the Tech Net News and Opinion show.  It certainly is in the spirit of what we believe in here at  Originally The Humble Indie Bundle, the company offers packages, aka bundles, with a pay-what-you-like model. The company is now a huge success.

According to an article at Boing! Boing!, fraudsters trying to take advantage of would-be-do-gooders by turning them into victims, are at a record level.  Quoting the article:

Fraudster scumbags have beaten all records in setting up fake Japan relief pages, fielding more than 1.7 million malware pages, 419 scams trading on the Japanese disasters, 50+ fake domains with “Japan tsunami” or “Japan earthquake” in their URLs. MacWorld recommends donating via the Red Cross, or other established charities that you’re familiar with.

The staff here at Indie Nation agrees with the Boing! Boing! and MacWorld.  Stick with the charities you know and we also suggest texting 90999 to donate to the Red Cross with you cell phone.  So be smart, be leery and don’t become another victim.

The staff here at Indie Nation, just as almost every one else, as stunned and moved by the magnitude of assistance Japan will need to recover from the recent tsunami.

We are also aware that there already are many scamers attempting to take advantage of sympathetic hearts. We suggest that you donate 10 dollars to the Red Cross by texting 90999.

There is also a page at the American Red Cross web site where you can donate.  Kudos to George Takei for the tweet with an even better link that lets you earmark your donation by selecting from specific needs around the world.

Also, to all of you Tweeps out there, help let even more people know about this by retweeting George Takei (aka Sulu) who had 91 retweets at the time of this post.
