How this works

This isn't really a blog, but a growing list of links. I try to keep them organized by function. Please use the date of the post as your indicator of the last time I've updated a given post/subject.
I started this for my own reference (yes, as bookmarks), but decided to "set it free". Well, not that free. I don't like social bookmarking, so here it is.

Support

NB. This is not an endorsement of any of these agencies or websites. The fact I have their link them means I found out about them through a source I have some respect for. Remember that it's up to you if you're going to accept candy from strangers.

AuthorAID - www.authoraid.info - Courses, videos and articles about writing articles and grant applications. Targeted at researchers in developing countries.

Instrumentl - instrumentl.com - An agency that proposes to assist researchers with finding and preparing grant applications. Used to have a crowdfunding platform. They also post articles on their facebook page.

Crowdfunding sites - Wikipedia table of comparison
A couple more blurbs about crowdfunding science projects (web snapshots): Wired, Washington PostQuora
I'm not that na├»ve to think that people wouldn't be using such services for commercial things, but seeing a destructive, ignorance-promoting-"outdoors"-show as the most funded thing in one of these sites which used to be more science-project oriented was disgusting. Hence, you go for a table of comparison and decide if there's one you'd be comfortable associating with.Glad I paid them a visit before posting the link. Yay!
