Crowdfunding Gets More Social - The Crowded Room #18

In the Crowded Room this week: A Kickstarter to send a 9-year-old girl to a camp to make a video game may or may not be a fraud, but it’s definitely one of the most controversial crowdfunding campaigns of the past week that has lit up communities like Reddit.

That, plus more funding for more crowdfunding: Specifically 12 million dollars from big names for Crowdtilt, a platform that Reddit fans are also familiar with. It aims to make crowdfunding more social by encouraging groups to gather and fund everything from charity causes to vacations.

Finally, we discuss why anyone interested in crowdsourcing should spend more time in a casino.
