Not to argue semantics but crowdfunding now has a very specific legal
definition.  Kickstarter doesn't quite fit the definition under the new law
at least not by my reading of it.  But yeah in laymans terms it is
crowdfunding.  Crowdfunding in general is a really cool concept but I'm
more or less doing this as a toy, just to teach myself the tools.
