The Internet brings many wonderful things, and it seems with each passing day and week more opportunities arise from its bounty. The last couple of years web sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have made it possible for socially conscious entrepreneurs and go-getters to launch businesses and fund projects they otherwise never would have seen to fruition. This crowdfunding phenomenon changes all of the rules, making the entire online community into potential angel investors! Gravity Light marked my most recent foray into crowdfunding support, and I cannot wait to receive my finished product sometime later this year.
