Kickstarter

I just ran across Kickstarter, and it's brilliant. Go look. Now.

They also have a blog.

Basic idea: provide a "funding platform for artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, journalists, inventors, exploreres..." that lets said creative folks offer up a concept, solicit contributions, and if a threshold amount is achieved, launch the project. There are some great (and some greatly kooky) projects at Kickstarter!
