Microryza Brings Crowd-Funding To Scientific Research 40

Zothecula writes "Crowd-funding sites like Kickstarter have proven popular for groups and individuals looking to get a consumer product, movie, music or video game project off the ground. Now a group of researchers and scientists is adopting a similar crowd-funding model to raise money for scientific research projects. The Microryza website, which launched this week, lets the public get behind research they care about and maybe help it get out of the lab."

    What's the point of linking to the useless "Gizmag" article when the Slashdot summary contains basically the exact same content? Furthermore, why the hell does the "Gizmag" article even exist, when at the bottom of it, it in turn links to an article at some "Ubergizmo" site that also says essentially the same thing?

    Worst of all, the Slashdot summary doesn't even fucking link to the Microryza [microryza.com] website!

    Cutting out these useless middlemen blog articles and linking directly to the site being discussed is a lot more efficient, you know.
