Sloan Foundation grant submitted

We’ve just submitted a proposal for a $125,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. We’re really excited to work with Sloan, who have a great record of funding important projects in the advancement of knowledge and scholarship.

In keeping with our commitment to radical transparency and openness, we’re making this available via our GitHub repo.

By opening these kinds of documents, we reveal our inevitable failures and lose some strategic control over how we unveil our plans. But we gain accountability, transparency, and engagement with our community. We’re pretty excited about that.

Keep in mind that this is a living document that will likely go through some revisions before it’s (hopefully) accepted. And feel free to post any feedback to the mailing list.

(Update: we received the grant! Read all about it here.)
