I am a crowdfunding geek, backing projects via Kickstarter.

My website is a handy guide for about backing crowdfunding campaigns specifically on Kickstarter.

I research and discuss the issues that backers encounter in rewards-based crowdfunding: the process, risks, rewards, expectations, legal recourse for failed delivery etc. I will also be sharing my Kickstarter portfolio and experiences, as created during February and March 2014.

Throughout my work, I seek to improve the existing dialogue on what it means to be a backer, as well as promote discussions on securing the rights and obligations of a backer in a primarily unregulated industry.

My website is supported by my blog. You can also add my Backing the Future Google+ page to your circles and follow me on Twitter.

This website is split into three sections:

  1. Backers: for everything related to backers, starting at the beginning and following the crowdfunding journey to the end;
  2. Templates: for tracking projects and rating project creators;
  3. My Kickstarter portfolio: for details on my portfolio, tracking my backed projects and my overall Kickstarter experience.

Throughout this site, I will use terminology consistent with crowdfunding platforms, such as Kickstarter.

Please contact me if you have any comments, suggestions or general feedback.
