Goals that Make Me Smile in my New Role as an ILF Community Ambassador

Feeling rather fortunate to be continuing to share my passions for building financial equity and sustainable funding solutions for digital creatives, the Web Monetization Standard, and Interledger, now as an Interledger Foundation Community Ambassador.

Ambassadorship Goals

My goals as an ILF Community Ambassador include:

  • outreach and education on the Web Monetization Standard and Interledger Protocol to the disability communities and First Nations communities

  • onboarding of disability communities and First Nations communities to utilising the Web Monetization Standard and exploring open payments through the Interledger network

  • outreach and education of digital creative communities on the Web Monetization Standard and exploring open payments through the Interledger network

  • onboarding of digital creative communities to utilising the Web Monetization Standard and exploring open payments through the Interledger network

  • increasing the knowledge and exposure of ways that people can Web Monetize their digital assets, the Web Monetized tools and platforms that exist, and the Web Monetize projects that people can peruse and engage with

  • creating spaces for people to experiment with Coil's tipping feature and to discuss and explore community building incentives

Ambassadorship Deliverables

Some of the ways that I will be doing this, include:

  • creating introductory overview / 'how to' videos and blog posts on different Web Monetized platforms and tools

  • editing and sharing the Web Monetized Podcast recorded at MozFest to different audio and video platforms, including Free Music Archive

  • building asynchronous online course materials on the Web Monetization Standard and ILP enabled open payments to some more mainstream online course platforms

  • sharing the above materials in a variety of niche communities that target the groups mentioned in my goals above

  • hosting synchronous overview and tutorial sessions with groups mentioned in my goals above

  • curating Web Monetized galleries and hosting tipping parties for groups that we are onboarding

  • creating a network of Web Monetized galleries, with accompanying lower bandwidth 'program guides' to feature the ever growing array of Web Monetized projects and resources that are available to peruse

  • updating and adding to the Web Monetization Libraries on StoryToGo from the projects in the Web Monetized galleries

Working With Our Community

If you have:

  • Web Monetization platforms or tools that you'd like featured in a video and blog post, please drop me a link to them

  • Web Monetized projects and resources that you'd like added to the galleries and libraries, please drop me links to them

  • a group that you'd like a synchronous overview and / or tutorial session on the Web Monetization Standard with, please reach out to see if we can arrange for that

Also, let me know if you have other ideas, platforms to share the educational materials on, and / or spaces in which to host galleries in.

Looking forward to diving deeper into everyone's projects as I work on all of this.
