  1. Spoopy Documentary Will Examine Lasting Impact of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    Novel gazing.

    A CBS Film adaptation of Alvin Schwartz’s notoriously terrifying "children's book" Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark may already be in the works (with a little help from Tim Burton!), but the creepy classic is about to get the documentary treatment, too.

    Shut up and take my money!

    Firefly's Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are collaborating on a web series about convention life and sci-fi stars, but that's not relevant to your interests, right? No. Certainly not.

  4. Crowdfunded Open-Source Vibrating Dildo Seems Like Ambitious Project

    And not just for the user. *rimshot*

    How does one crowd-source a dildo, I wondered, until I realized that the makers of The Mod are actually crowdfunding their toy, and open-sourcing the design. And the design is pretty fancy.

    Sorry, guys. The Internet already beat you to it. It's called doge.

    Over on Indiegogo, you can see one of the most bizarre and oddly enticing gadgets to ever compete for your investment.

  6. The 501st Legion Is Crowdfunding Imperial Code Cylinder USB Drives, Someone Crowdfund a Rebel Base!

    Crowdfunding Imperial Code Cylinders? What's next? Someone's going to Kickstart a Death Star?

    When someone tried to fund a Death Star on Kickstarter we may have had some unkind words about it, but this Indiegogo campaign to fund Imperial Code Cylinder USB drives? This we kind of love-- Unless it's the first step in a plan by the 501st Legion to build a Death Star and rule the galaxy.

  7. Canonical Tests Limits of Crowdfunding With $32M Idiegogo Campaign for Ubuntu Edge Smartphone

They've launched one of the most ambitious crowdfunding campaigns in history to offer enthusiastic early adopters the Ubuntu Edge smartphone.

  8. RAINN Indiegogo Campaign Works to Raise Money for Victims of Sexual Violence

    And All Was Right With the World

    Last week we reported on the offensive dating guide Kickstarter Above the Game: A Guide to Getting Awesome with Women, and how it encouraged sexual violence in it's advice on how to interact with women.  Since then, Kickstarter has apologized, banned relationship guide campaigns from using their service, taken the Above the Game campaign off their website, and donated $25,000 to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN).  While Kickstarter initially took some time to come to the decision to remedy the problem, and ultimately missed the window to cancel the project, their apology, which you can see here, was quite fitting and, most importantly, drew attention to a way to combat the actions the guide promotes.  Now RAINN, the largest anti-sexual violence organization in the United States, has started an Indiegogo campaign, Turn Outrage into Action by Fighting Sexual Violence , to directly combat the Above the Game campaign.

  9. Northlake Library’s Getting a Giant Hulk Statue With or Without Crowdfunding

    Hulk like literacy.

    In May, I wrote about the Northlake Library's Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a nine-foot-tall Incredible Hulk statue. There are still four days left in the campaign, but they're woefully short of their $30,000 goal. At the moment, they're sitting still at $3,710, but don't let that get you down, because the library is getting a Hulk statue. It's not the one they wanted, but they're not going to look a gift Hulk in the mouth.

  10. You Can Help This Library Buy a 9-Foot-Tall Hulk Statue

    If there's a better use of crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo than getting the Northlake Public Library a nine-foot-tall statue of The Hulk, we don't know what that use is. The librarians of Northlake have big plans, and those plans involve a giant Hulk statue, and helping people read and create more comic books. They also have one of the most awkward campaign videos we've ever seen.
