Swift Kick In The Ass

A few posts ago I talked about Quirky, a site that invited the public at large to help decide the fate of new products by committing to buy them before they even exist. Similarly, Kickstarter helps creative types of all kind gather the funding they need from regular people. With funding for the arts down to almost nothing, where else can artists get funding? Anyone can submit an idea and a projected budget. Then they just sit back and hope people like the idea enough to though a few bucks their way. Now I know how I'll get the money for that documentary about the Cargo Cult.
