Snowdrift.coop - Slinger - 2014-12-21

Just had to post this! Seeing so many people funding proprietary projects on sites like kickstarter has always confused me; if people help fund the development of software and art, shouldn't it be free (libre) and open for everyone? Surely crowdfunding sites should be about helping projects that doesn't lock the work down and exploit it. Turns out I wasn't alone in thinking this... Enter Snowdrift.coop! Not only is it about helping free/libre/open projects, but it also got a novel take on how to solve the problem with those pressured, time-based funding thresholds.

I believe we're looking at the beginning of the future of both computing and human culture...
