A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide and a large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement - that's the premise of Kickstarter - a funding platform for artists, filmmakers, journalists, designers amongst others. Some projects are so popular that they are up to 1500% funded. Interesting projects on the site include The Wonder City a graphic novel that reimagines New York’s entire history and MakerBeam, an open source building kit.

It's time for good ideas...!
