Direct Connect Network Foundation
The Direct Connect Network Foundation (DCNF) is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the DC network by improving software, protocols and other services in the network. The organization intends to increase the knowledge of the network for other current non-users as well as improving the state of it for current users.
You can help with either donating (Paypal, see below) to the organization directly or be improving the DC network. You may also wish to become a member. This can be done by following the actions stated in this forum thread. Members can vote in meetings and will also be able to request DC services and projects (to come). Each month the project will announce the financial situation (what has been the income and what has been bought). Note that none of the board members receive money, everything goes directly to the organization's ventures.
See the forum if you wish to participate in discussion or have any queries.
Donated money will go to paying for the infrastructure (domains, servers) and more. PayPal donation/member fee e-mail address is dcnf [at] dcbase.org.
The website is currently under construction, so stop by the DC hub or the forum for more information.
