How Kickstarter is Robbing Donors Blind

theBitFix writes: Crowd-sourcing is the newest trend to sweep the internets and take the whole world by storm. Leading that charge is Kickstarter. With the service any shlub can put up and idea accompanied by a cost that he or she believes they would need to make this idea come true. Then, any shlub can donate to that other shlub’s idea and once that price is met, he or she gets to keep it all, minus Kickstarters fee and taxes, and begin work on said idea. Sounds great, right?
