Project Supporters

The following wonderful, generous people contributed $10 or more (some contributed much, much more!) to the Year of Open Source project during the IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign, which raised $6731, allowing me to leave my part-time job and focus much more of my time on this project over the coming year. This project would not be possible without you.

Those contributors who asked to remain anonymous, you know who you are (and I know who you are) so thank you, your generosity is very much appreciated!

Thank you to everyone who told their friends, who gave a dollar, who tweeted, blogged, and gave suggestions, sent links and encouraged me throughout the process. A special thank you to Judith for all the drawings, editorial advice and constant moral support!

A huge thank you to each and every one of you!

    1. Hi Kate, I am on identica, reddit + diaspora as well, but facebook and twitter are also necessary. Although I no longer have a personal facebook account I do have Year of Open Source twitter and facebook project accounts. This is because the target audience for my project is not necessarily people who already use free software and hack their hardware, but rather it’s about reaching out to people who don’t already know about these ideas. Those people, unfortunately, are on facebook and twitter.
