[UPDATE] The IndieGoGo campaign has come to an end, and thanks to generosity of 134 lovely people, we raised $6,731!
That’s enough for me to be able to focus on this project for the year, pay for plenty of materials required, and I don’t have to spend as much time working on other jobs. I’ll send out the Copyleft Cookies recipe and an update email in the next couple of days, and the other perks will follow in the next couple of weeks. Thank you so much to all who helped out, and if you like you can see who all these wonderful supporters were.
What is the Year of Open Source?
From August 2012, I’m trying to live Open Source for a year – avoiding traditionally copyrighted products, using products released under open licenses, or adapting or developing my own.
I plan to use myself as a subject in an experiment to canvas the range of open source ideas and products, search out and discuss ways around traditional licensing, and see how the ideas of free software, libre hardware and openness can affect different areas of everyday life.
In every aspect of my life, from the clothes I wear to the film equipment and appliances I use, I will be looking for and switching to open source alternatives, in hardware, software and services, documenting everything in order to show as many people as possible the many directions and applications of this way of thinking.
