[open-science] Science Crowd Funding

It'll be interesting to see how many of these crowdfunding sites the market
can support and whether we really need a different one for each little
niche.  Both Microryza  <https://wefunder.com/microryza> ($162,000) and The
Open Science Space
are themselves crowdfunded, so why not just use a generic platform like
Kickstarter or IndieAGoGo for science/research too?  I smell consolidation
in the wind.

"Magic School Bus + Bill Nye the Science Guy + NOVA special + National
Geographic = Microryza"

Darn!  I was hoping that was going to turn out to be a cool acronym instead
of just a string of words.
