A new way to fund political projects using the Internet:
People are pledging contributions to fund these ads.
Their pledges are backed by credit cards, but the cards will not be charged until enough pledges come in to make
at least one ad possible.
This mechanism of conditional contributing, which the Web
makes convenient, will revolutionize the way political projects are funded. This system makes people more likely
to give because they know their contribution will definitely go to make something happen. People want to be a part
of something big. Making a contribution alone is a small thing--but this system allows people to be a part of a
tangibly huge contribution that can make something wonderful happen.
see this as one way to cut through political apathy. When I say, "I can raise enough money on the Web to fund
an Ad campaign to tell the truth about Bush," the response has been: "That would be great, of course
I'd contribute to that if I thought you could actually do it, but not enough other people will give." Using
this funding mechanism I can get all the thousands of people who would say that, to put their credit card number
where their mouth is. Then I can go back to them all and say, "I found three thousand people like you and
I can now fund the campaign." They'll be psyched.
This ad campaign is just the first example of a
new form of political organizing that will be very common, very soon.
