1. What IS crowdfunding? 

Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.   Musicians, filmmakers, and artists; charities, small businesses, and inventors have successfully raised funds and fostered awareness through crowdfunding.

Was it not THEE Mark Twain who something similar by taking out a newspaper ad and asking for people to pay up front for a book he had yet to write.  Smart man!

Think of crowdfunding as a variation on a PBS pledge drive. Your contribution equals thank you gifts.  Indiegogo calls them PERKS.  Sounds so happy!  Indiegogo?  Think go-going-indiependent with lots of FUN on top.

2. What is a PERK?   I'll answer by playing with words and definitions.

perk: [purk] noun Informal.  perquisite. Incidental gift over and above the regular that makes you feel more cheerful, lively, or special.
