    Great blogs. Thanks so much for sharing. I am developing with several people a synthetic biology game http://on.fb.me/xHvMAZ . We wish to use gamification as a motivation tool in order to get people involved in online collaboration. The business model is always a big discussion for open online apps. Crowdfounding is a really interesting option. We discussed this a lot in our group. The Soapbox Science blogs about crowd founding are an awesome addition to our discussion.
    We prepared a list of interesting crowd funding links:

    I love these new ways of supporting science. ScienceLeap.org is another. It allows anyone to support science through shopping online.
