    :haha:Today while I was browsing around top 50 2010 inventions,I came across a website called Kickstarter.Here you can post a project,(+1 for creativity) and people will help you meet your goal by giving you the capital.

    Check it out,this guy made a goal of $80.000k(!!!!!) dollars just to write a book.He says that 40-45.000$ will be used for advertising and creating the book.The rest will be used for "living" :| .Guess what,he managed to get the money...Here is the link

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1862402066/the-brotherhood-of-the-screaming-abyss

    $85K to write a book?Are you fucking kidding me!?That's what I call a good money making opportunity,too bad I can't use it myself because I don't live in US but tought I should share with you guys!

    So,if you ever wanted to do something cool,and want to let people pay for you,and for everything else you want,check out this website ;)

    Don't forget to say Thanks
    :get_ready

    The thing about Dennis McKenna (the author who raised a bunch of money) is that he already had a reputation behind him. I doubt anyone without a reputation and proof will be able to get the 100$+ pledges, or even $10+ pledges. Worth a try though, if you can think of a noble cause :)

    I just came across this one,and there's a section called small projects.Where people even had 10$ projects.Hell,I saw a guy asking for 1$ and people gave it.
    Anyway,this is what I'm talking about.Our designers should take advantage of this ;)

    Check the goal he haves,and how much he got.

    I've seen this before. It's a very good opportunity. I'm not too sure projects that make a profit would end up getting any funding. But, if you want to create some open source project, this would be the place to go :p

    I seen this before too, pretty cool. Surprised so many are willing to give.
    There's a small catch though, if you don't reach your goal int he alloted time, you don't get any of the money. So if he asked for $85k and only raised $80, he wouldn't have gotten anything.

    Interesting but as 'download'' mentioned .reputation plays a very important role in there .. but its never too late to start building rep up in there if anyone is that determined

    Yes,but in the same time,could be something symbolic to remember them about something good they did in the past.

    If someone dosen't have so much ethics and is a US person who's ok to work with that site,shoot me a PM.Oh,and you need to have some reputation or something I can trust you.
