|Who we are:
|A not-for-profit organization still
to be established.
|To help make textbooks and other
instructional materials freely available via the internet, to public schools,
private instructors and individuals, everywhere in the world.
Prizes and commissions will be sponsored by pledges
made for works in a particular field and of a particular level. For
instance, a sponsor may pledge $20 towards having a text in first-year
calculus placed in the public domain. Prizes will be given to authors
whose books prove useful in a classroom environment; specific details on
what makes a book eligible need to be hashed out. Textbooks may be
commissioned if nothing appears to be forthcoming and if there is sufficient
To offer cash prizes to authors who place their works
in the public domain or make them available under a public license (such
as the GPL).
To commission works for placement in the public domain.
Further details will be available in the future.
|FreeTheKnowledge.org will need generous patrons
to help make this information available; but before it can happen, we need
to establish ourselves officially as a not-for-profit organization.
