2014-02-12-its_all_geek_to_me.png I love crowdfunding, because it's like watching money have a wrestling match with ideas. It's capitalism in microcosm.

Frankly, I don't give a damn. But for the love of God, please don't give money to drug dealers.

We are learning that if a cause or a project matters to people, they want to be a part of it even if it is not connected to a known charity.
