What happened to this post? Is there another place where it is being discussed? It sounds very interesting. Thanks!

It's on my blog. I don't think the scheme works, and in general it seems any scheme introduces incentives to not look like a beneficiary. If I were to do this now, I would just run a prediction market on the total # of donations, have the match success level go from 50% to 100% over the spread, and use a small fraction of proceeds to place N buy and sell orders against the final book.
