Funding (from donations) and the diaspora* project
Diaspora now has the ability to accept donations, under the non-profit umbrella of the FSSN.
It would be useful to discuss two things:
- How should we use any funds raised from donations?
- Should we actively seek to raise funds from donations, and if so how should we go about this?
We should consider all ideas and think about medium-term strategy for fund-raising, but also to think of simple, manageable first steps we could take both in raising and using funds (assuming we agree to do both of these things).
This discussion concerns funding raised from donations given by people who want to support the project. Other ways of making money, such as building money-making schemes into the Diaspora app itself, are not within the scope of this discussion.
