Candlewaster is a team of Philadelphia-based free software activists who improve, maintain, and develop free software. We collect bounties on Bountysource, sell/service Linux laptops in the Philadelphia area, and develop our own projects.
Free software is about freedom—freedom from corporations who attempt to control their users and place a stanglehold on the internet. We‘re fighting against that.
Candlewaster is a collective. In short, this means that what we get out of it is proportional to what we put into it. We’re a non-heirarchal team with equal standing that works together to solve problems and create a more free world.
