Should ML start funding and supporting IT ideas and tech



  • Hi,

    https://mangolassi.it/topic/18681/something-not-said-enough

    This thread start me to get the idea of should we rally all and create some sort of bucket and fund IT ideas and stuff and create thread of them.

    Like if we love something we can endorse it, get it going and use the power of the people here.

    I dont know how much ML users are but like 2$ each to fund very neat idea we can move something and give it 1000$ in best case scenario, we can chat about the idea and make topic about it, also we can support internal users ideas if they will embrace the ML concept of sharing knowledge and accepting criticism and feedback.

    Can we have new Category for this ? and voting system ? what do you think ?



  • So the praticality of creating a fund with the ML platform just doesn't exist.

    We could likely use the platform as a means to get people to go to a go fund me page.

    I don't know if doing anything else would be worth it otherwise. Since ML isn't a crowd funding platform.

    I dont want it to be crowd funding platform, but like we can create section for ideas we like and we can vote on them and we can help out and push them.

    The idea is not to create alternative to kickstart but for us to rally and be movers and shakers, by all ML community moving as one entity.

    I’m a bit confused. What does the end goal look like?



  • @Emad-R So are you talking like something to help to ML community, like a ticketing system, or an inventory tracker? And ML users could help fund the project? Do you have something specific in mind?



  • @pchiodo @EddieJennings

    We will have new segment called Funding or category or page, where we post stuff we like or interested in, and the end of the month we make vote system to choose which stuff we like the most

    No i dont know much about how the money system will work at the of each month, put it may be like one pot we put in it and at the end of month depending on the vote it goes there, think internal projects like Soduim suite, or anything in indiegogo to kickstart that we like

    I know were are not rich but dollar here and dollar there from member we can make impact
