SocialMed: Science Seeks Grassroots Funds

document Crowdfunding
Summary
Artists and writers have already taken advantage of the wide reach of the Internet to drum up financial backing for their projects, and now scientists are engaging in similar "crowdfunding."
Description
Scientists and researchers are posting their projects to sites such as PetriDish.org and the upcoming ScienceBucks.com (scheduled for official launch in May) in hopes of inspiring enough supporters to advance their work.

One of the earliest examples of "crowdfunding" in journalism was Spot.us, where the public could pay for articles on topics they deemed important. Another site, Kickstarter, features hundreds of creative initiatives in need of cash, from documentaries to dance production.
