  8. I wish there was a feed which had a list

    of new free software crowdfunding campaigns... Oh.... damn.
  9. cffsw.modernthings.org @crowdfundfloss Aims • Keep a record of crowdfunding campaigns

    for free software projects • Successful and (some) unsuccessful • Maybe also free culture, free hardware • List current/new campaigns
  10. cffsw.modernthings.org @crowdfundfloss Why would you care? • Potential backer: want

    to financially support FLOSS (or collect stickers) • Potential campaigner: research before launching your own campaign • Potential researcher: study what works – so we as a community can be more successful
  11. cffsw.modernthings.org @crowdfundfloss How can you help? • Spread the word

    • Let me know about any existing campaigns I haven't covered (there must be lots!) • Let me know when you hear about new campaigns!
