Well-watered public goods

The joke jumps into my mind because it is raining felines and canines outside, and a friend has asked me to publicise his crowd-funding masterclass.

Q. Who was the greatest financier of all time?

A. Noah, because he floated alone while all the rest of the world was in liquidation. Boom boom!

Well, I like it anyway, and post GFC, raising funds for anything has been a bit difficult, and what with the weather, it just seemed to hit the spot.

As might crowd-funding for your next project.

Tom Dawkins of StartSomeGood is running the masterclass, and you can book here http://crowdfundbrisbane.eventbrite.com/#

It could be worth going along. While StartSomeGood seems to specialise in raising amounts in the thousands,  there are many ambitious projects around, such as this attempt by economist Steve Keen, to crowd-fund the development of a new economic model – he is looking for $1,000,000, and as of today has raised $53,373 of his first target of $50,000.

  1. It’s still raining cats and dogs, and that reminds me of a couple of water jokes as well. [At least there are no flies.]
    According to a Scots rallie; Water is the finest of drinks, if taken in the right spirit!
    Q: What’s the Irish cure for water on the brain?
    A: A wee tap on the head.
    And given elephants drink a lot of water?
    Q: What’s the one major difference between an elephant and a letter box?
    Don’t know?
    Well, I certainly would trust you with my mail!
    Cheers, Alan B. Goulding.
