Laura Hilliger is creating words and digital things

patrons

My "day job" is that of a freelancer. I am an activist. I work with non-profit, mission driven organizations. I do webby stuff and big brain stuff with global communities. I contribute to open source, speak at conferences, co-founded a co-operative. I do stuff around culture shifting, co-ops, open behavior, ecology, psychology, leadership. You can google me and find all that stuff. I'm also a maker. I write. I tinker and make.

I'm still writing Maybe Zombies. I write my newsletter every week.

It's not the money that motivates, rather the intent behind it. Paying people for their creativity is like going to the dive bar where your friend's band is playing. Entrance is cheap, and you're supporting your friend.

I want to write books, lots of them. I want to make a game called Coffee Quest. I want to make a spider that crawls the internet and collects hilariously outdated websites. I want to make a sculpture out of crayons. I want to do a digital art project that traces my data in correlation with my learning*. I want to finish the Emotional Mapping project I started.

*I have a floppy disk from when I was in kindergarten. I want to start there and then make a crazy visual that tracks my skill with computers from childhood.

I don't have a lot of time for these things. My "day job" requires enough of my brain power that at the end of the day I'm spent. It's my first Patreon, monetizing to make art feels strange. Maybe it won't work, and then I'll delete my data and carry on. Or, maybe you'll choose to be a patron, and we'll see what happens.

Do you have feedback for me? Please get in touch!

Every little bit helps, thank you for supporting me. People who support me on Patreon get patron-only posts. They are short, sporadic and random, but they do not appear anywhere else.

My posts across the Interwebz and my weekly newsletter are free, but they take time. Thanks for showing me that my time is valuable. I appreciate it!
Sandwich Sponsor (with fries!)
$10 or more per month
Wow, thank you! This is generous. Sponsors at this level get name recognition in my newsletter (if you want). In the future, I hope to offer sponsors at this level something more than recognition - like access to special digital things and/or stickers or something like that.

I'm looking for the first 10 people to support me on Patreon. I feel like the first 10 is an important milestone. Those folks will have my ear ;)
