If you haven't heard of Kickstarter.com, check it out. I think I heard the name quite a while back, but really thought nothing of it until someone recently brought it to my attention again. I took a good amount of time today to browse Kickstarter's Web site, and I'm impressed.
In a quick nutshell, Kickstarter is a platform that allows artists, photographers, writers, filmmakers, and other creative professionals to promote their projects before an audience of potentially millions, and to fund those projects by harnessing the power of those potentially millions of people to give small donations.
So check it out. This is a really neat opportunity for creative professionals who have the expertise, talent, and vision, but just need a little hand with financing their projects.
