Kickstarter and the Arts

Kickstarter anticipates giving more arts funding in 2012 than the National Arts Endowment, which I assume is the US version of the Canada Council for the Arts. This is obviously great, but with government arts funding on the decline, it may also provide a decent excuse for cutting public funding to arts programs and initiatives altogether, which is a very, very bad thing.

(Related: In addition to the projects I linked to earlier, I also just backed Matter, which seems like a pretty great initiative that’s worth your $10. You can read more about Matter here.)
