This week, a group of funders got together in Philadelphia, for the first time, to discuss software infrastructure.
We had a range of funders in the room, from philanthropic foundations (Ford Foundation, Sloan Foundation, Media Democracy Fund) to software foundations (ex. Mozilla Open Source Support, Linux Core Infrastructure Initiative) to funders with a more private (Union Square Ventures) or public (Open Technology Fund) flavor.
I was keenly aware, coming into the conversation, that we all had very different backgrounds and even definitions of the problem. It turns out we had more in common than I realized.
