We reckon we need about £30k in (mostly) development, and a thin slice for grapihc design, PR, client development etc. etc. to make Directionless Enquiries work well enough to bring in a critical mass of people necessary to make it change the world in the way it should.

We don't really have any plans for how this could make money as an idea - although we think it could be a good investment one way or another. Apart from always making sure people helping people remains free and worth using (ie. not full of lame advertising or sell-outs), we are sure this idea should exist and people will pay for it to exist somehow.

If you spot something lame, please use the bug tracker: http://directionless.info/tracker/
  
But mostly we want your money - as much of the £30k as you can give us. We have the skills and experience to make it work. Promise :).
