It’s been a little quiet over on the update page, so we thought we’d stop in and get you up to speed. As of 9:13pm ET we had a whopping 7,419 signatures! You can keep up by viewing the list of signatories, which has the total number of signatures right up at the top.
This is amazing, and when you look at the web traffic patterns, it’s almost all driven by word of mouth. That’s you. It’s both humbling and inspiring to see this campaign go on to totally outgrow the efforts of just a few grad students to become a push by the entire public!
Signing is just the start: follow us on twitter, like us on facebook, set standwithscience.org as your IM status, email it to your friends… however you get the word out. That’s how your one signature grows exponentially. That’s how your voice grows until it echos in the very halls of power in Washington.
Congratulations, and keep up the good work!
