I had a suggestion this weekend that it would be easier if people didn't have to create an account to back a project. Which is a nice idea. But we still need some way to track them down by email in case their charges fail.

I ended up sending 12, so just under 50% of currently launched campaigns.

I really like this idea, but don't know if we can assume reliable conversion based on these sources. My thought being that if your research is exciting enough to get published in Science Daily, then you probably already have funding (esp if sourced from Science or Nature). This doesn't just hold for Science Daily, I feel like a lot of research that gets picked up easily is fairly well funded. But perhaps that's just my impression based on the fact that it was picked up by journalists at all -- probably they are in just as bad of shape as the rest of us. The low effort and compounding nature of this is very cool.

Persist? Or do you mean "what are the things we are saying in the emails"?

just spit balling here - specific disease groups -- they already have strong, established follow networks. they may not come back, though. so maybe that won't work. - conservation networks. conservation research money is hard to come by and orgs like WWF have high overhead. if we can help conservation researchers do more direct conservation research by funneling the money directly to them, that would be cool.

isn't the goal to increase this conversion rate though?

ResearchGate is also weird and uncompelling and has icky design. Maybe other people like it more. I don't.

But lots of people in the public like them. We're tapping into those people, not the Cindys.
