This has been my primary project. We do intend to crowd-fund once we start collecting complaints, and have plans for a self-sustaining social business model.
The more patronage you can gift me, the fewer Uber Eats meals I will need to deliver to pay the bills, and the sooner I can get OpenPolice.org launched.
In October 2017, SurvLoop has it's third installation for CannabisPowerScore.org! This is brought to you by Resource Innovation Institute and supported by cannabis associations, utilities and local governments. Collecting and sharing data on cannabis growing efficiency, this non-profit conservation effort helps growers assess their energy performance, lower their costs and improve the industry.
This spring, I've also help some dear friends launch DrugStory.Me, which is currently crowd-funding. This website is the second installation of SurvLoop, and promotes the health and safety of all mind-altering drug users.
In the near future, I also want to create more educational games to strengthen classical education skills. The first is functional as a web site http://DontFallacy.Me , but I would like to seriously redesign it, and turn it into an app, after launching OpenPolice.org.
But my single most successful community gift in the past was to create (code) BurnerMap. About one-third of Burning Man attendees have used it each year since 2011. When I finally finish the above projects, I wish to give BurnerMap an facelift and go open source with the code.
Glowing after a 2016 conference, I created personalized animated GIFs with the lovely faces of hundreds of my fellow drug policy reform activists. This had a delightful side-effect of flooding this community's news feeds with inspired motivation to compete with Trump. Sorry I haven't been able to maintain the original pace.
I love creating fun and/or useful stuff for my community. Throughout my life, I have always done tons volunteer work, and always want to do ever more of it. A lot of multimedia and art make it from my brain to the world, and is released under Creative Commons licenses.
So IF you have financial wiggle room, even becoming a $1/month patron is a generous and easy way to kick back a bit of the value you've found in my efforts. <3
I'll be able to keep doing more of all this, and can more effectively bring it to the next level with a steady baseline income.
