GigaOm got in touch with John Cook on Friday to ask what will happen with the over $184,000 raised from the Crackstarter campaign.  The response:
"I'm presently reaching out to potential recipients to find a good home for the money. Hope to have something to announce soon," Gawker editor, John Cook, wrote in reply to an email query.
So he's still in the "reaching out" phase, which admittedly can take a while.
