Kickstarter is an interesting new way to get your project funded. Using the power of the crowd (crowdsourcing) Kickstarter aims to help entrepreneurs, artists and others get funded by the people who enjoy their work.
Good idea, although unfortunately it’s U.S. only.
Update: I have been informed that anybody from around the globe can pledge funds to a project, however due to the way payments are processed, project creators must have a U.S. address and bank account. Thanks Andy.More
