DailyDirt: Science Needs Your Help

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Kickstarter isn't the only crowdfunding platform on the internet. There are plenty of folks jumping on the crowdfunding bandwagon, and with the decline of basic science funding, scientists are hoping to convince some backers that their pet projects are worth a multitude of small contributions. Here are just a few examples. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    I think you posted this request in the wrong forum. Try one of the Creationist forums and I am sure you can get a lot of funding.

    I think they'll need a bit more than $1M to create a useful nationwide ISP...

    ooh, but a $25,000 level for free ISP service for life?! That might be cool if they said what dataspeeds.. and meant the users life, not the life of the ISP.
