  7. 7. cffsw.modernthings.org @crowdfundfloss Aims Keep a record of crowdfunding campaigns for free software projects ● Successful and (some) unsuccessful ● Maybe also free culture, free hardware ● List current/new campaigns ●

  9. 9. cffsw.modernthings.org @crowdfundfloss How can you help? Spread the word ● Let me know about any existing campaigns I haven't covered (there must be lots!) ● Let me know when you hear about new campaigns! ●
