Here is something VERY VERY great that you can donate to and I'm confident we can reach the $12k goal: Nathan's NG documentary!!!!
Over the past year, Nathan has sold hand-made plush dolls in our store to raise money for his documentary, but with the rising success of Kickstarter, he finally has the opportunity to raise some serious money! He needs this money to cover the travel and production costs associated with all the people he wants to talk to. You will be doing a very amazing thing for Nathan as well as for NG if you donate. Thanks in advance to anyone who pitches in! Donating $100 or more scores you a tour of the NG office (you have to get yourself here though).
Don't miss your chance to participate in the June Monthly Writing Contest, with a theme of cinematic combat.
The ATLANTA MEETUP IS THIS WEEKEND!
Also remember Robot Day is July 10th and EVERYONE (artists, programmers, musicians, voice actors, writers) can participate and win prizes! Mindchamber has posted a bunch of updates on where to participate with art, audio and writing. You can also see the original announcement. Or to summarize:

Don't miss out, it should be fun!
Speaking of fun... We got new Sumo beanbag chairs!
Back in 2006, Sumo sent us Omni beanbags in exchange for a plug.
A bunch of you guys bought stuff from Sumo, Sumo was pleased and we loved our beanbags, so in 2008 we got some Sultan beanbags and plugged those!
New for 2010, Sumo has unveiled the Sway Single and the Sway Couple. We asked if we could snag a few for the NG office and they are AWESOME! Especially the Sway Couple, which is a very comfortable way to hang out and watch movies / play games. It's got the coziness of a traditional beanbag but has a curved back that gives you great support when sitting, so it's like a hybrid between a couch and a beanbag chair. I wouldn't keep doing these shameless plugs if we didn't love Sumo beanbags and want to keep getting more of them for the office. GO TREAT YOURSELF, you deserve nice things!
Here is a picture of sys-admin Tim enjoying the Sway Couple:
