2,412 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
Google's Project Glass and Ingress have created lots of buzz about the future of augmented reality, but the truth is they could be just as much about crowdsourcing as anything else.
In Episode 13 of the Crowded Room, we speak with Fundrazr CEO Daryl Hatton about the platform for raising cash for all sorts of causes, including the victims of last year's shooting tragedies. In the podcast, we also discuss crowdsourcing Super Bowl ads and the return of Kim Dotcom and Mega.
