Pay for all the stuff I'm doing for free and have enough left over to support other creative work. 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.

Coffee Sponsor
$3
per month

For the cost of a half a cup of coffee per month, you are showing me that my creative time is valuable. I greatly appreciate it! This tier also gets patron-only posts, and I often stare at your names and feel the love.

Sandwich Sponsor (with fries!)
$10
per month

Wow, thank you! This is generous. Sponsors at this level get patron-only posts, name recognition in my newsletter (if you want), and prompt answers and interactions to their feedback. I offer my attention :)

About

My new book, Maybe Zombies, is out now! I also write my newsletter every week.

I am an activist. I work with non-profit, mission driven organizations. 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.

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. Join me and my friends at the "Laura makes stuff" bar.

I want to write more 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 I want to make a spider that crawls the internet and collects hilariously outdated websites.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!
Goals
15% complete
When I reach 51 patrons, I'll run a community poll, so you can tell me what you want. Here are some potential options:

a) A podcast called "Everything is Derogatory", which explores whether or not stuff we say is politically correct
b) An Audio book for Maybe Zombies
c) A (organised) book of the hundreds of posts on my blog
d) Something you suggest
