DailyDirt: Put The Fun In Crowdfunding
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
More and more crowdfunded projects are popping up all the time. We’ve mentioned a few recently, like the video game that collected over $3 million from tens of thousands of folks who essentially pre-ordered the game before it was even created. Here are just a few more cool Kickstarter projects that look interesting.
- Endangered is a short live action film project which tells a story about the world after it’s been taken over by strange and dangerous creatures. At just the $20 level, your face will be included in the film on a “missing person” poster in a post-apocalyptic world. [url]
- You could probably buy steel wall hooks from some huge hardware store chain, but they wouldn’t look like rabbits and come in a handful of colors. And why wouldn’t you want wall hooks named Frank? [url]
- Long-form journalism isn’t dying, and Matter wants to prove it by producing important and newsworthy stories. A team of reporters will be writing about science and technology stories each week, they’ll be aiming to sell each article for 99 cents a piece. [url]
- To find more interesting stuff on entrepreneurship, check out what’s currently floating around the StumbleUpon universe. [url]
By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Re: Lots of Kickstarter love today..
how did anything on the web get to be so popular? luck of the draw. also probably having been around since before anyone thought it was a good idea, and doing a way better job at it than anyone had a right to expect for such a nascent phenomenon.
Thanks to whoever Flattr'd this post!
I think it’s interesting that this post on crowdfunding gets a Flattr vote.
Should we post more crowdfunding-related DailyDirts…?
Thanks to our anonymous benefactor!
