ZZ2 - Special Section - crowdfunding & crowdsourcing

Many transmedia projects require/need/desire collaboration - this section focuses on resources related to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.

Crowdsourcing Definition: [from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crowdsourcing ] "Crowdsourcing is the act of outsourcing tasks, traditionally performed by an employee or contractor, to a large group of people or community (a crowd), through an open call."

Crowdfunding Definition: [from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crowdfunding ] "Crowd funding (sometimes called crowd financing or crowd sourced capital) describes the collective cooperation, attention and trust by people who network and pool their money together, usually via the Internet, in order to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. Crowdfunding occurs for any variety of purposes, from disaster relief to citizen journalism to artists seeking support from fans, to political campaigns"
