Last week I used 2 BTC to support Jupiter Broadcasting’s Unfilter show (and their other shows, but only Unfilter takes BTC so far). Just now I noticed that someone made a 0.5BTC donation to my blog (I’ve had a BTC donation address in the sidebar of my blog for a few years now). Thanks!
As I promised to pass donations onwards, I googled for bitcoin donations, and chose the following places to give 0.05 BTC each:
- Juice Rap News for making high-baud political commentary (Unfilter in rap form)
- Freedom Box for actually doing something about Internet freedom.
- Torservers.net (as recommended by torproject.org) for the same.
- f-droid.org for keeping a healthy Open alternative.
- Bitcoin Foundation to support and strengthen the infrastructure that made this possible.
- The Free Software Foundation even though I don’t always agree with them.
- Wikileaks for recognizing something society needs, even if they stumble at delivery.
- The Internet Archive for something that only gets more useful over time.
There are two left to go, so I’ll keep an eye out for more opportunities to donate in the next few weeks…
