Carlos is back to talk to us about crowdfunding in journalism and about a upcoming crowdfunding workshop, hosted by MediaShift, a partner of Through the Cracks: Crowdfunding in Journalism.  The workshop will be lead by Through the Cracks Founder & Editor Khari Johnson on August 18th 1PM EST.

For those who may not know what crowdfunding is, here’s what Wikipedia says about crowdfunding:

“Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people, typically via the internet. Crowdfunding is a form of alternative finance, which has emerged outside of the traditional financial system.
The crowdfunding model is fueled by three types of actors: the project initiator who proposes the idea and/or project to be funded; individuals or groups who support the idea; and a moderating organization (the “platform”) that brings the parties together to launch the idea.”
