Become a sponsor to Andrey Petrov

I am a doodler and computerer. I like open source, room-scale virtual reality, linux, neovim, and p2p systems. YC alum and Xoogler. Cat person.

Most of the things I build are open source. I like to switch focus on different projects every few months, so sometimes I do paid work but a lot of my projects are unpaid work that I feel needs to exist.

9 sponsors are funding shazow’s work.


Help cover all of my recurring hosting-related expenses for my open source projects.

Money is just a number, and you made the number go up. A few more of these, I'll just be able to do open source full time. I don't even know what I could offer, want your name in a README or something? What is the highest honour... Hmm.
