kickhub.com will help free software developers and free culture contributors raise more money.
Donations to Free Software lack transparency
Donations and crowdfunding campaigns are operated separately
Costs for running small crowdfunding campaigns are too high
Crowdfunding platform are using non-free software
Let donators advertize (or not) their donations
Build a single platform for both donations and crowdfunding
Release KickHub.com software as GNU AGPL
I'm Bastien Guerry, passionate about free software and free culture. I've been involved in OLPC, Wikipedia and GNU Emacs. I came to free software as a benevolent amateur and I think there is room for giving free culture contributors more financial autonomy.
Please send me an email if you are interested in testing and/or contributing!
I'm now working hard on the website. I will release an early prototype in April 2014 and test it for some projects of mine. If there is a wider interest, I will open it for other developers/contributors to use, and perhaps boost its development with a crowdfunding campaign later on. Stay tuned!
