Open Access Button Update – June 4

Jisc Summer of Student Innovation
We have received 156% of the required votes JISC Summer of Student Innovation, so we are through to the next round to get £5000 in funding! We will use the funding to bring Button 2.0 to mobile devices. Although we have received the required votes, you can continue to vote for our idea and increase the project’s popularity. Turn 30 seconds into £5,000 by voting to bring Button 2.0 mobile.

Crowdfunding Campaign
Unfortunately, our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign was not successful. We were seeking to raise £20000 to support the development of Button 2.0. We received £2135 in donations from 87 fantastic supporters. Although our crowdfunding campaign wasn’t successful, we are very thankful for the donations we received and the funds will go to development time for Button 2.0.

WikiConference
Over the weekend Co-Founder David Carroll spoke at WikiConference USA 2014 about the Open Access Button.
