Phi Beta Iota: Excellent story, with $200,641 being the top funded project so far.  Imagine the day when the public refuses to pay taxes but contributes to what it really wants, cutting out the carpet-bagging intermediaries.  Missile defense and most Pentagon pork would NOT get funded by an informed engaged public.  The game has changed.
