Chad Whitacre will talk about Gittip and opensource culture. Gittip.com is a platform for sustainable crowd-funding. Chad is an active member of the open source community and the author of the Aspen web framework, as well as tools for mapping and database management. He is also the founder of IHasAMoney.com, a personal finance website for geeks. His personal website is www.whit537.org.
This lecture is apart of EMERGENT FUTURES NOW: a lecture series dedicated to the structures that promote creative people to create and imagine for the changing world: collaboratives, cooperatives, collectives, hacker spaces and open source culture.
This lecture sounds very interesting.
