I spent a large part of the past 12 months working on a research project which was kindly funded by the Ford Foundation and the Sloan Foundation and hosted by the Center for the Cultivation of Technology.
The main goal of my work was to better understand the gaps in current funding opportunities for digital infrastructure projects, where they come from, and how they can be mitigated. You can read the results in the report Roadwork ahead: Evaluating the needs of FOSS communities working on digital infrastructure in the public interest.
GIF aficionadx can read the report as an online version here, for offline consumption there is also a PDF version.
I invite anyone to share it, or to reach out to me with questions or suggestions.
