There are quite a few useful sites where a company or individual can post about a programming project they are willing to pay to have implemented, places like rentacoder.
More and more I find myself, as a programmer, in the opposite position - I have a programming project that I have already implemented an initial version of on my own time, and am pleased enough with it to think it deserves further development. DC has provided such a wonderful place in terms of being able to get some support to work on these kinds of programs. But there are also times when it's not real a DC-centric project and I can't afford to keep working on it on my own time -- and i don't have the skills or inclination to try to market it or find traditional funding.
I'm sure other programmers at DC may find themselves in similar situations sometimes.
So while I know this is a long shot, I wonder if anyone had any ideas about how a programmer might find and connect with someone who would be interested in funding additional development of an existing project and handle the business end of things, in return for partial ownership, etc.?
