[boingboing] Humble Indie Bundle hits $1m, goes open-source, gets 4 day extension

There'll be a lot of good, necessary beard-stroking over the next few weeks to figure out exactly what the organizers of the Humble Indie Bundle -- a six-game pay-anything collection that's just managed to top a million dollars in sales in a week -- did right, because it's something that seems it could and should be repeated.

The nitty gritty: as of the time of writing, nearly 116,000 people have donated nearly $1.05 million, [...] that amounts to roughly $137,000 to each developer in a week, all of whom had seen sales of their years-old games dwindle.
