    That’s an awesome fund-raising idea.

    Ye gods! We throw them out all the time – occupational hazard of running a data center from your basement. I’ll see how many my husband and I can pull together.

    I’m not an SF writer, but this is a really terrific idea for a fundraiser. Collecting the writer’s “aura” in the age of mechanical reproduction, and all that… Nice.

    I think this is great, but I don’t see why you need to limit yourself to only one keyboard.

    If you get 50 or 100 writers to donate their keyboards and you only take one or two letters off each of them, then you still have hundreds of letters left to make similar ones. I don’t think the awesomeness of the keyboard will be reduced if you have 10 of them than if you just had 1.

    And anyway, 10 of them sold even at half the price is more money raised than 1 of them.

    …I also see no reason why only one lucky person should get to have such a cool keyboard!

    Knowing the states of mind that I get into when I’m writing, I suspect this keyboard will hunger for souls.

    You have been warned.

    That’s brilliant, I love it. I’m such a sucker for objects with stories :)
