Overall I like that slogan.
There is one point I haven't seen come up in discussion (apologies if I missed
it) but should be highlighted. I don't have a strong personal opinion on how
important this point is, but because of whose point it is and the projects
Snowdrift.coop aims to support, it should at least be mentioned:
Now the slogan doesn't say "digital goods", but it does use "goods" in a way
that to me felt slightly confusing initially (and would probably be more
confusing to most people, since they spend less time thinking about software
than the majority of us).
I don't know if there are good alternatives, though. "Public works" isn't an
option since it has its own meaning (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_works ) and "public works of authorship"
feels a bit long to me.
Anyway, I just wanted to highlight this. To me, the current slogan shouldn't
be rejected solely on the basis of this, but it at least warrants a review by
people more connected to the project than I.
