slides

Martin Owens is a software programmer currently focusing on the Inkscape graphic program, and on economics in the free software ecosystem. Martin and other Inkscape developers have been using personal funding platforms to raise the money to make their work more stable and user-focused, and in this talk, he describes his experiences and his ideas on how to change free software economics, from the current model of business versus volunteers to a more equitable arrangement for both users and developers.
