From Mark Charmer (akvo.org) via Twitter:
My challenge for this week. Explore ways of getting the WECF projects quickly funded using comms. List here (scroll down) http://is.gd/2EPY
Click through, and you'll see a list of projects waiting for funding, a little like Kiva, but with some significant differences.
Mark, Appfund is a small mailing list with folks from Open Source Ecology, Appropedia, AIDG and other groups discussing issues related to getting appropriate technology funded. It's very low traffic (like six mails a month) but Marcin's pushing forwards with some very interesting crowdsourcing stuff for the open source tractor project, and I think you guys have a lot to talk about.
