Iterations on Crowd Funding.

Star Citizen is taking an ‘Open Crowd funding‘ approach.  Looking up Neal Stephenson’s CLANG for a friend reminded me that Star Citizen and Mechwarrior Online are not the originators of this tactic.  You can still contribute to CLANG even though the kickstarter successfully completed four months ago.

Leaving contributions open after a kickstarter campaign is a great idea.  Open crowd funding before running a kickstarter seems to be putting the cart before the horse.  If a successful kickstarter can keep funding going after it closes, what about a non successful one?  Can you reach you’re goal even after the kickstarter has failed?  And what about a Flexible Funding program that only reaches half the goal?
