A few folks have asked how they can support the expenses of running the FLOSS.social instance. There are not a lot of expenses right now (€10/month) but if you're interested in chipping in, you can now become a FLOSS.social "Monthly Supporter"! Donations accepted via CommitChange, who run the free software Houdini Project to manage transactions. πŸ™‚

Thanks!

What are some examples of #FLOSS projects whose development is *mostly* funded through #Patreon or #Liberapay? Mastodon comes to mind of course. What else?

I need more examples for an article I am writing about free software.

There's a new episode of @librelounge out where we interview Karen Sandler about herself and her work as Software Freedom Conservancy's executive director librelounge.org/episodes/episo

Can I also just take a moment to say... WOW! Karen Sandler is our first guest on Libre Lounge! Karen co-hosted Free as in Freedom and that show is an obvious direct inspiration for Libre Lounge; it's *amazing* to me that she's our first guest!

Hope you like the episode! I think it's our best yet!

Happy New Year! Back from a delightful end-of-year vacation and eager to get back to work.

FLOSS.social

FLOSS.social was launched on 1 April 2018 as a Mastodon instance for people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Of course, discussions aren't limited to just FLOSS -- let's share our unique interests! English is preferred for maximum conversation opportunities within the FLOSS community, but it is not required. Respect is required, however: Users on FLOSS.social agree to abide by the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct. This service was installed and is maintained in part by Masto.Host with equipment located at OVH. You can support this instance financially through the Monthly Supporter Program, processed through CommitChange using the free software Houdini Project.
