Kickstarter.com works fine for hardware, art, design, music etc, but it doesnt for open source software. I want to create a different service that will be dedicated for opensource deveopers.
It will address two problems that are bypassed by Kickstarter - a) opensource developers dont know/dont like to advertize themselves, b) all-or-nothing time limited model doesnt work for long lasting projects.
I have a prototype and ready go further. Prototype is online at bitfund.org, contact me to view it and join.
