Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm working on developing Crowdismo.com on D7. I've pretty much put it together with just views and panels and I'm currently usingi the Amazon FPS module for payments.
What about you guys?
The issue of supporting the C4C effort beyond the initial burst of energy provided the C4C event is still a problem. Assuming that we improve our batting average with this years event, we might able to boost the sustainability of the effort with Crowdfunding.
I know some thoughts addressing the sustainability problem have been floating around. I thought this should be added to the list of possible solutions.
Ever wanted a place where you could simply offer to pay to get something you need in Drupal done?
Please donate to make that place. (Yes, it's using a different crowdfunding platform, one that really lacks features for coordination, but is passing on all money raised -- if we reach the minimum -- without even deducting credit card fees.)
And spread this link! http://tilt.tc/usLL Is there enough interest in community funding of Drupal software to fund the software to coordinate this-- in just a few days? Also, if you are available to work on this project in DrupalCon Denver, we've got a DrupalCon ticket for you! Or if you're interested in working on this later, contact me for that, too!Read more
we are trying to implement the 5 motivators of giving, as shared by in the TED Talk of Taylor Conroy - How to Build a School in 3 Hours (worth watching, 19min) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aC02SmuOxYI . The motivators are: Group Mentality, Tangible Outcome, Microgiving, Personal Connection and Recognition. We believe that these are indeed motivators and we want to integrate them in the CiviCRM Personal Campaigns.

There are people who would like to spend more time doing Drupal contrib work but who cannot financially justify taking time off commercial work or minding the kids (or other demands of life) in order to do so. These are often highly skilled and experienced members of the Drupal community.
There is an opportunity to make it financially (and otherwise) viable for these contributors to choose to do Drupal contrib work by helping them find commercial sponsorship, primarily from companies who benefit from Drupal being a better product and a stronger more active community.Read more
