I really like this script and I also think that this works better for the short
version. Well done Michael!

I'm thinking that in this super-short intro, it would be better to omit
any reference to a snowdrift. It's just too confusing, not necessary
enough, and doesn't help to engage people right away. People can find
out why we're called Snowdrift.coop later, but here they just need to
know, understand, and feel positive about and interested in the core of
what Snowdrift.coop is about.
As to the "free" qualifier discussion, I think it's absolutely critical
to remember that the overwhelming majority of the world has not the
faintest idea that a phrase like "free music" ever means anything other
than "music you don't have to pay for".
Here's an idea omitting the Snowdrift reference. I've done quite a bit
of other editing which I can explain if that would be helpful.
When music, software, movies, news, research, and so on, are released as
public goods, everyone can enjoy them freely, without limitations.
But who will pay for them to be created?
Snowdrift.coop's pioneering crowdmatching platform empowers you to join
with others to fund the public goods /you/ want created.
You pledge to donate a tiny amount each month for each patron who
supports a project with you, within a budget you control.
Your donation is matched by the rest of the community, building
consensus that directs support to the most promising projects.
