Pledge for funding to the Gnash project to get AVM2 support

http://people.skolelinux.org

Petter Reinholdtsen: The Gnash project is the most promising solution for a Free Software Flash implementation. It has done great so far, but there is still far to go, and recently its funding has dried up. I believe AVM2 support in Gnash is vital to the continued progress of the project, as more and more sites show up with AVM2 flash files.

Gnash development is stopped: funding plea

http://www.gnashdev.org

Free culture projects need a ubiquitous funding system

http://blog.thesilentnumber.me

The free culture movement, which is of a whole with the free software movement, has made a lot of great progress but is still struggling to prove itself to be economically viable in the mainstream. I might even go so far as to say that a lack of a better funding system is the single biggest thing holding back many existing and many more prospective free culture projects.

Google helped fund an ARM optimised Theora free video codec

http://google-opensource.blogspot.com

Ask most computer users what their preferred video codec is and they'll look at you as if you asked what sort of motor they'd prefer in their washing machine. ``We just want it to work!'' they say. In this regard, it’s exactly the same for content creators and publishers. Every visitor to a website that can't view a video is one set of eyeballs less for a message to get through to.

Raising Money for Open Source Projects: How Can We Improve?

http://ostatic.com

One of the things I admire about the FLOSS community is the willingness to dig in and tackle problems facing a project, whether they're technical, structural (hosting, etc.), governance, licensing, and so on.

Take that to the Open Source bank

http://www.itpro.co.uk

Think open source and you might think many things, but I doubt very much that banking will be towards the top of the list or even on the radar for that matter.
