Not everybody’s a multi-millionaire, and now you don’t even need $10 to contribute. If you like the project and feel like contributing, whether you contribute $1, $5, or $1000, every supporter, included those who have already donated, will receive a recipe for Copyleft cookies to make at home. (I can personally attest to their buttery, chocolaty deliciousness). And if you’re feeling greedy, just rotate them to create copyright cookies, and eat them all yourself.
Feeling peckish? head over to IndieGoGo, check out how the campaign’s going and give a dollar to a crunchy, sweet, chocolate-studded cause.
One of the key people behind the Firefox web browser, and a board member of the Open Source Applications Foundation, she has been one of the strongest advocates for widespread adoption of open source software. To find out more, check out this interview for Wired!
*Richard Stallman and I would both like to make it very clear that he is NOT an open source hero. Richard Stallman is not associated with and does not endorse the project Year of Open Source, due to its use of the phrase Open Source. See “How Open Source misses the point“. He is a FREE SOFTWARE hero (it’s important).
Thanks so much to all those who have contributed so far!
And a special merci beaucoup to Alex from framablog who wrote an article AND translated my press release into french. Thanks to OS Hardware engineer, educator and maker of awesome shit, Jeremy Blum (see him in action here) who posted about Year of Open Source on his website. I even got a call from Loek Essers in Amsterdam, who wrote this article about the project.
We’re doing well but plenty more support is still needed, we’re creeping closer to the IndieGoGo front page with every link, comment, and visitor popping by, so please continue to spread the word on twitter, facebook and blogs!
I’m doing a wee bit of open source construction on the weekend, so if I don’t drill through any major arteries there’ll be a video update early next week. Have a great weekend everyone!
