    Love it all. These animations make audio so much more enjoyable:)

    Can you open source your great software and also allow us the community to improve it with you (without your permission)? Trusting human nature is key:). Can you fund this development (which will benefit you)?

    Crowdsourcing can be one way to democratically solve many problems as they can be solved without anyones permission by groups of people who agree on a given goal. We (the crowd) would like to help develop what everyone is doing. How can I/you/they enable us the crowd to improve your work (without having to get permission?). How can this be done for any Charity, organisation or government?

    There are several things that any organisation can do to help us the crowd improve your work…

    You can release your software as open source so everyone can use it for other ‘do good’ activities (and help you improve it).
    Read up on the benefits of sharing online so that the rest of the world can benefit from your great work rather than just a few people.
