I'm so jealous! The only galagos I ever saw in the bush were bright, shining eyes in trees (or on the very rare occasion, jumping from tree to tree).

The more I learn about crowdfunding, the more I believe that it's a major missing piece in our current view of funding. In the six years that Experiment has been alive, we've enabled researchers to collect pilot data that has led to at least one major NSF grant and a large handful of other "traditional grants". Other researchers have been able to collect data that suggested their original hypothesis was wrong, and changed direction so that they could go down the right path. Students have been able to be paid to be scientists, or even been able to afford the lab supplies to finish their thesis. Science and discovery shouldn't be a pay-to-play world. This shouldn't be a place that only the rich and well connected can come to test out their pet hypotheses. And I don't think that just a few people in an ivory tower should get to decide what is important social research for everyone else. The world is changing, but traditional funding programs aren't changing with it. I think that there's a huge place for crowdfunding in social and physical sciences, and that role is growing. We just have to get everyone else on board.
