Last spring, while I was manning a Fractured Atlas table at a career fair for the School of Visual Arts, I had the good fortune of being seated next to John Trigonis, a campaign specialist at Indiegogo.

If you don’t speak geek, this might not be immediately exciting to you, so let me just show you what it looks like and what it does.
