2 Crowd-Funding Opportunities

Mon, 06/04/2012 - 13:07 -- John Locke

Crowd-funding is a pet favorite topic of mine. It's the opposite of taking control over a shared resource and turning it into profit -- it's building something that benefits everybody, enlisting a large number of people to make it happen.

Two time-sensitive crowd funding things caught my attention this morning:

1. Bryan Lunduke, host of the Linux Action Show and developer of some interesting games, comics, and cross-platform software tools, is attempting to raise $4,000 a month through crowd-funding, and if he manages to do so, promises to release all of his software titles under the GPL license. Go check it out, and give him some love!
2. This week the NW Entrepreneur Network's Breakfast Buzz is a talk by Jordan Weisman on his successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of a game called "Shadowrun Returns."

Update: Bryan Lunduke succeeding in raising $4K in monthly subscriptions, so he has open-sourced his entire software collection... Congrats Bryan!

  1. Freelock computing is, in my experience, unique in that they have assembled a comprehensive, well-rounded team of technical specialists yet they function on a high level together as a team. The Freelock team is adept at speaking in human, non-technical terms  when discussing projects with laypeople.
    Throughout the development process we inevitably came to many decision points in terms of which direction we would continue, and Freelock was always instrumental in counseling us through the merits and liabilities of the choices in front of us.
