Article for conference booklet:
FOSS Factory mission is to accelerate the advancement of free/open source software (FOSS) by enabling collective design, funding and development of any software project.
We have an online model (www.fossfactory.org) that lowers the barriers of entry for people to participate in the creation of complex open source projects by breaking the funding, design, and development responsibilities into smaller chunks, which in turn are pooled back together through our system.
