Call the book: "Crowdfunding: a Guide to What Works and Why." Seek $35,000 on Kickstarter. And stand back to watch the crowd opens its wallet. One problem: The crowdfunding crowd this time wasn't funding ... at least not enough. After launching his solicitation on July 6, veteran technology writer and would-be how-to author Glenn Fleishman was forced to pull the plug 17 days later after garnering just under $4,000 in pledges toward his $35,000 goal. The result is the painfully ironic screen capture.
