The CrowdCrowd-Video Edition

on Thursday, Jul. 25th

I'm so excited for this recording of The CrowdCrowd I could burst. Here's who we've got on our little podcast about crowdfunding and crowdsourcing this week:

Regular panelists Cindy Marie Jenkins, Jonathan Poritsky (The Candler Blog), and Lucas McNelly (A Year Without Rent).

Returning special guest: Emily Best, founder of Seed & Spark.

What are we talking about, oh, just a few little things like: Spike Lee's campaign, subscription-based crowdfunding platform Subbable, Ubuntu Edge, the diaster that is The Doom That Came To Atlantic City, and the successful release (thank the Maker) of Shadowrun Returns. Plus the #LatteFund, as usual.
