I placed this under Project Share because its not the same as “Spark Teams Kickstarter Campaign” so I hope it remains here or if need be, is put under the “General Category”.
Okay, all you investors and inventors. We all have seen the hard work of folks like @BDub @timb @bko @kennethlimcp @peekay123 and Many, Many others toward the development of shields as well as some great Library porting and custom aps on Github. I for one am very greatful for these contributions.
I would like to make a suggestion and like other suggests I have made in the recent months it may come with some backlash by the community but, that’s okay. I darn well know its a good suggestion and I won’t even atemp to fashion how it should be done.
My suggestion is “Community Funding” for the development of shields and even custom programs. I would suggest the initial offer could be private between the seeker and the developer. If the developer feels the project will have mass benefit or even sellable (like I know @kennethlimcp MicroSD/Fram Card is going to be) the developer can seek additional funds from the commnity. (Kickstarter or whichever way needed).
I for one wil glady put up $1,000.00 to have a a privacy shield designed and line up for production. A shield fit for a King ! However, it will have to be a shield that the community will be happy with as well !! I’m willing to do it ! Let “the Community Decide what is best” ! Are you ? Are you ready for me to help tweek your project shield - “Your Baby ?” Before you sell me short as so many do, let me explain what I did many years ago. I was employed by an Oil Company back in 1995 heading for $60K a year. I was a Process Analyst where they paid me to verify work done by all departments, Safety & Engineering. I quit my job and moved on because my Boss’ were unwilling to allow me or others tweek their ideas. So, I am not a moron ! I’m not the brightest ! I am the most flexable person you will ever work with who will piss you off because I will back you in to a corner until you finally realize you need to say “Uncle” !
Now that the introductions are done and I had my laugh (the above is really True - Honest !) for the night, what do you all say ??
I have a Grand $ and we can use my money to create a monster method for getting shields built and a method that others can use to broker deals that result in fast solutions with only one catch. Just like Shark Tank - if we are going to use my money, your’e going to have to sell me on how this process of funding should work. All aspects and everyone, and I mean everyone ! noobies to Experts need to chime in on this - Speak Up and Be Heard !
Exactly what do I want built ? Not only do I want a some what simple privacy shield designed to production I want a Community Funding system put in place that it can be repeated 1,000 times over by everyone in the world. Should be easy enough
And you guys thought I was kidding about taking over the world So help stop Bobby from taking over the Spark Core World by creating a Spark Core Communinty Funding Platform that you can live with too.
Many Thanks, Bobby
