Taken from the campaign page. This fight is very busy…

I’ve been in touch with the creators behind the Worlds in Peril Kickstarter campaign.

A few messages back and forth, and then:

Talked to the team, and yes the text will be CC-BY. I hope that is something you can get behind. :D

I’ve let them know they should list it on the Creative Commons Kickstarter listing, and also make an update/note on the main page that the text will be CC-BY.

Also, to assist in showing the support that us free gamers can muster, I suggest using the the “commons” as a reference for their analytics. So share the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/63676387/worlds-in-peril?ref=commons ^_^

Oh, and the project is a supers game, based on Apocalypse World (the same base for Dungeon World)! Fun!

I’ve stuck to my policy of only supporting crowd-funding campaigns of works that are free and in the commons. One of the projects that I make an exception for is Smut Peddler, which has a 2014 campaign. Despite not being free to use in creative ways, it is erotica that is women-created and -friendly. The first issue was great, and is included in some of the award tiers. Check it out! ^_^

I love this! Kano: A computer anyone can make.

I am not sure why, but there is a tier for buy one, give on, but it is “sold out” at 3 pledges. I think this is a great project, and I want to personally hand these out to people nearby. ^_^

The HUB Oakland Kickstarter just reached 50%, with 18 days to go! I pledged, because I want to see this awesome space open in Oakland, and be part of the change that is happening. I’ve been searching for a space that is both interesting and filled with cognitive diversity. HUB Oakland matches that!

And the cool thing about the Kickstarter, and this particular HUB, is that it will be very inclusive, and will be given out scholarships. When I think of the lucky breaks I’ve gotten, and how cool it would have been to work in such a space, I can’t help but think it will really help some folks.

For my part, I am putting myself in fortune’s way. I can’t wait to see what emerges!

The People’s E-Book project is of great interest to the digital publishing world, but it value to me will be determined by how open it is.

Mothership HackerMoms: The first women’s hackerspace! – They are hacking their space, and gathering tools. ^_^

Lunatics Animated Series Pilot

Also, I don’t think that FOSS game creators should emulate the practices that produce so-called AAA titles. I love crowd-funding! It makes me really happy! I wish # had a page on # the way # does! Finding FOSS projects on there is really hard, given their current search functions.

Tropes vs. Women in Video Games is a project by Anita Sarkeesian, to discuss the roles in which women are cast in video games. It is a cool project, and e has been harassed for it. gg, hate gamers.

Kickstarter updates have a particular feel to them, and it caught my interest.
