I know, right? I figure Karp just wanna see who devs something sick and then buy it all up.
Tumblr doesn’t have a ful-fledged iPad app? Boo.
Any non-official apps y’all followers can recommend?
Another idea I am forming is in order for Whuffie to work, these crowdfunding programs need to evolve to crowdsourcing programs.
In other words, platforms like Kickstarter & Indiegogo need to allow non monetary pledges of resources like materials, facilities, services, and manpower.
I saw the merits of social capitol in 2002, and as the social network developed over the last 10 years, i saw that it was not only possible, but likely. This morning reading about a Kickstarter for espresso machines that is 400% over goal in the first 4 days, it occured to me that we now have all of the conditions needed:
• Distributed democracy: Social connectivity that supercedes authoritarian government. (social platforms distributed through devices- no headsup display…yet.)
• Automated monetary system outside of banking and governments (bitcoin)
Self manufacturing: Etsy & 3D printing.
• Platforms where ideas, performance, design, creativity, and demand comes together: crowd funding.
Who will be the Steve Jobs of crowdfunding? Who will be the first purely social manufacturer who does not sell out to traditional corporations?
What are the main obstacles?
