Spotlight on Patreon: Peter Hollens

Mon 24 Nov 2014, 12:44 PM



by Ben Langhinrichs
I am at the point in life where I seek to find meaning in more than the pursuit of filthy lucre (though I'm happy to continue doing that as well). One of the ways is by supporting independent artists and musicians who have chosen a path less lucrative. I have little native artistic talent (though I have fun with Gimp and can write fairly well), but I can throw a few bucks here and there and help out those who make the world a more entertaining, beautiful place. Hence, my interest in Patreon, which I think of as  crowdfunding for the creative class. I have no incentive but to encourage those of you seeking some meaning to consider helping out some of the independent creative people who are making a go it with the help of Patreon. Or just discover interesting people to follow, even if you don't support them. As a business person, I'll probably inject my thoughts in how these artists and musicians are handling the business side of things as well.
