Hi, I’m a strong advocate for everything that Ind.ie does (I don’t use Apple myself anymore, but promote Better to all who do).
I also am cofounder of a still-struggling-to-get-launched platform aiming to fundamentally change the way we cooperate in funding the free/libre/open creative economy. The site is https://snowdrift.coop/
