filomenaslovak shares project struggles in this progress report.
> I started hoping to facilitate empowering community where the creators could share their learning journeys. I have struggled until this report's deadline to figure out how I could do it. I started Eduforem, where I hoped to build the community. The struggle was fivefold. First, I groped for the way to remunerate the co-creators fairly. Second, I took too large a scope - learning anything. Third, I doubted the sustainability of Eduforem beyond the grant and did not want to get people there and close it shortly. Fourth, I did not know how to get around compulsory GitHub email collection. Finally, I ran into a chicken and egg problem - if I opened it and the platform would be of little content, it would be unattractive for people. Thus they would not come. Therefore, there would be fewer postings.
> We are very pleased to announce the completion of our Grant for the Web project to apply the web monetization framework to the data storage use case. Our final product for this funded project was a plugin to Etherpad that allows a user to seamlessly save a version of their pad to a participating data storage provider if they have Coil running in their browser. Permanent.org is the initial participating data storage provider for the purpose of this grant.
