Rockethub -- Another place to crowdsource fund some science
This article came by way of this month's Wired (which is pretty great, btw, as Bill Gates stepped in as editor). I knew about RocketHub, but I didn't realize that people were successfully using this as a method to fund their research. You can browse through, look at research proposals, and donate to ones that you feel are viable.
I flipped through a few on the site (by simply using the search term "science", which also brought up a lot of science fiction). LabScene is one of my favorites, a project that hopes to replace the peer review process!
You can go directly to Rockethub here, and check out the video for LabScene here.
