I want to work for open source and I don't want to beg for money. I suck at self-advertisement and community building. I have a chronic condition making me all flop for a while and I want to stop stressing about deadlines on freelance work. I wish there was UBI but there's not.
How would I get sufficient funding for open source work, say if I want to do at least 75% open source work?
@JennyFluff let me know when you figure it out. Pretty much everything I write these days is open source with a strong license.
start out. offer your your work to people and remind them whenever you can that they can sponsor you. from then on you can eventually grow the amount of time you spend on your foss work.
yeah, that requires a bunch of upfront investment on your side.
otherwise you could maybe try to get upfront sponsorships by marketing your project and convincing people you’re the right person do do it like marcan did: https://9to5mac.com/2020/11/30/developer-hector-martin-announces-patreon-funding-for-bringing-native-linux-to-m1-macs/
