MediaGoblin campaign for federation and privacy in 2014!

MediaGoblin campaign launch

I’m excited to announce that MediaGoblin has launched our new funding campaign. We’ve got a wonderful new video that I think clearly explains our goals for the coming year… check it out!

This last year has been really excellent — thanks to your support! We’ve pushed out five major releases, hosted six successful internships through Summer of Code and Outreach Program for Women. Plus, we began integrating federation into the main MediaGoblin codebase and making a general purpose federation library called PyPump.

We’re not going to stop here! With censorship and spying on the rise, this last year has also shown just how important our work to decentralize media publishing on the web is. And we’ve got big plans to tackle these issues and even work on tools that all sorts of projects can use to improve decentralization on the web.

So we’re asking for your help. We’ve partnered up again with the Free Software Foundation, and we’ve got a lot of cool things planned: wrapping up federation support and releasing 1.0, adding new privacy features, podcast support, making MediaGoblin even easier to run and deploy!

We’re also offering some sweet rewards, and a pixel-art-illustrated list of funding milestones. See for yourself!

Did I mention that since the FSF is a 5013c charity so your contributions are tax-deductible in the US? This also means that if your employer does contribution matching, MediaGoblin is an option! And finally, for folks who dig our work all year round, we’re set up for monthly donations.

Anything you can do to spread the word of the campaign REALLY helps! Word of mouth from our supporters is the most effective way to get our message out there, so if you can tell your family and friends, post to your blog or social networks… we’ll be able to build the future of the web!

Thanks again for your help! You make this possible!
