Burmablog Approved as Charitable Activity on Flattr

Submitted by on March 4, 2011 – 4:41 pm2 Comments

Great news: The team of Flattr has approved the activities of Burma Center Prague as charitable and granted us therefore a special status, as announced on their blog. This, of course, affects also the project here at burmablog.net, giving us the opportunity to raise additional support on our way to a largely sustainable operation.

Flattr is an awesome idea that works very personally from reader to writer and establishes a possibility to honor non-commercial efforts on the web, despite the illusion that all that is online is free, which I believe has too much promoted the interests of large corporations.

At the moment, however, Flattr still needs more publicity especially outside Europe.

While we are still fine-tuning some parts (in particular Burmese languages) of this website, the actual launch will happen only after we gained a better overview of our financial possibilities.

So please stay tuned!

    This is fantastic. So great to see Burma being supported in this manner. By the way I just also wanted to say Christoph great articles about Burma and the whole sanction issue. Definitely not a black and white, cut and dry problem. Thanks for all of your efforts to make sure this gets out to the public.
