There were exactly 20 backers of the proposed kickstarter project:


Since then, there have been perhaps 10-20 inquiries about the future of 
ActiViz on the VTK mailing lists.

If there is sufficient interest, I would be willing to try again, this 
time skipping VTK 5.10 and going directly to VTK 6 / master.

Reply with a +1 or contact me directly if you'd like to discuss the 
future of ActiViz.

(What I'd really like is a team of developers to learn how it works who 
really really want to carry it into the future..... It cannot succeed 
as a 1-man project. At least not if I'm supposed to be the 1-man.)

Let me know,
David C.
