    This is optional, but the Transmediale Jury is quite interested in what you like about the project, and so are we!

  • Now, sit back and feel good about helping us in the battle against the centralization and enclosure of the internet! The Open Web Award would mean a lot for us, since it helps promote the ideas behind Thimbl and to attract enough participants to make it a viable platform. But, if you’re inspired to get even more involved, come say hi in our new community forum.

    Thanks! Pass it on, if you could.

  • - use open and free technology, and
  • - incite participation and/or collaboration.
  • Along with two other great contenders, Graffiti Analysis/Graffiti Markup Language and Booki, Thimbl has been nominated out of a pool of 1000 submissions.
