Snowdrift.coop, crowdmatching, and public goods funding
Hi! I'm co-founder of Snowdrift.coop and an overall free software activist. I otherwise run a private music teaching studio (and use exclusively GNU/Linux and free software within my music teaching and so on), more on that at wolftune.com

William Salt Hale is a Seattle local who has been involved with the Free Software movement since 1996. Currently, he volunteers as Impresario of SeaGL and Community Director of Snowdrift.coop. Open to opportunities, Salt has just begun a sabbatical after five years of graduate studies at the University of Washington where he focused on the intersection between communication, computer science, and law. Salt tries to be very approachable and will always be found wearing a kilt.
Come chat with community and team members from Snowdrift.coop, a community funding platform. It's based on the idea of "crowdmatching" — a pledge to donate a tiny bit to a project for each patron who will give together. We'll have open discussion (not strictly about Snowdrift.coop) around funding, sustainability, community-building, and cooperation around solving the freerider problem that FLO projects face.
