Like the MoeDict, they would be perfect for getting monies and services. Let’s do it. Let’s do the crowdfunding. This project, I’m not sure. I think we need to discuss with who are participation.
Especially, it’s related to policy. Once you start to accepting donation, or there will be lots of hands. How do you say that? Lots of political, if they want to get the influence, it will be more complicated to handle. I’m not sure if I cannot do that ...
What if, for example, if you want to run a long-term project? Money would be necessary for you to run a long-term, if you have a goal, a very particular goal to do good in vTaiwan. This project, for this stage, I think, is not that kind of project.
Maybe. Maybe, but they will...
Yeah, I never thought of that. Maybe we can do that after this, so we can have more resource. The only thing I don’t want to do is to take money from the government.
That’s how he would do. I think crowdfunding is not that diverse, or that decentralized. That money might come from the same resource. It’s not really that...We can try and do that good. I wasn’t thinking about that before two weeks ago.
He said, “If I am going to do that,” then that makes him to cover what he covered the source of those money from. He rather to do, “OK, you can see that, is that one even supporting me? But I’m still doing what it comes to.” I think ...
Johnny would always be challenged. I asked him in the summit why he don’t use crowdfunding; we can also donate to the crowdfunding system.
And not that pro-parties.
I really admire the people who run that project, who call Johnny, and I’m not sure if you met him. I asked him why, because he always be challenged from people in g0v, that why are you taking money from that organization? That organization look like they have different ...
Any different small project of g0v, they have different way to raise their money. Like Cofacts, they get the grand. I think they are from the grand. Another, the election guide...
I don’t think it would be a good idea to go to my bank account. Maybe if they go to Jothon, then it would be nice, maybe.
For Jothon, and with a donator, you can donate for that project. They use the money to buy pizzas and all those foods at that date. I think that space is free, too.
I think that there’s, like Jothon, except for people, like at that day, people, you can donate in the kind of boxes. You will also buy long-term donation.
Yeah, that would make things more easier, but on the other hand, once you get...You attract different kinds of people, like all of you here...
Pineapple, yes. [laughs]
She just volunteers.
Yeah, but I don’t have money to pay someone. There is a project from government, and how you return?
Yeah, more things to build a community. I’m not really good at doing, organizing communities, but I’ve been trying.
If I can skip my job, then I could do this. If you want to do this on a long term, I don’t want to rely on grant. I’m not sure if, yeah. I’m not really sure about that. For vTaiwan itself, I think the most important ...
MG say she think we can apply for the grant from OCF or from Jothon, the g0v grant. I’m not sure if, I don’t know. I also started to think about the problem of money from, not because I was think...Yeah, there’s always lots of things ...
That’s really good for everyone, around this and about the space, because we really have here. It’s not a problem now.
There’s a private chef over there. Sometimes, if he was here, it’s how the onigiri, the rice ball comes from. Sometimes, he will make some food for us, like chicken soup, or something like that.
Sometimes, people bring food here, and sometimes there is a...
The main thing is about space. Spaces and people, people who run it, and about the food, right? Food is basically from here (a donation box), and Audrey’s pocket and my pocket. [laughs]
Even other communities, because I work in an association which is supporting startups. I also go to lots of startup communities. I learn from them. For the spaces, you already have the space.
Like the MoeDict, or like the Cofacts one.
That’s how the hackathon works, the big one of g0v, actually. I’m not really, know how to build a community. When I started to do this, I went to lots of small, mini hackathons.
Money? Oh, we don’t have money. [laughs]
Yeah, but that one is not actually about the community itself. Which part of this you want to hear?
You mean this community, or about the g0v community?
[laughs] Interpreters, they are amazing.
That is a wonderful mistake. [laughs]
This is one Go. She thought that is what told her to go. [laughs]
She pitch on the stage, and she hold a conference, because she say she saw a sticker on the table. Do you know the skill of the stickers...?
Yeah, deaf in one ear. The mother, she want to do something about the welfare to people like her daughter.
In the summit, in the second day, there was a mom with a kid who is...
We had a sticker who, like, “Go.”
I’m sure their air are better than upper place.
You can see, there’s totally no, almost no, nothing happening in this area.
Yeah, every time I saw this...
She always had the introduction in her slide...
Every time when you were talking about the the AirBox Project. I was like, “OK, this is how our digital gap.” [laughs]
