We see Crowd Sourcing Campaigns going crazy these days.
I was thinking VVVV could have something from this cake as well.
For example with the following headlines:
Rapid Game Development Platform (Crowdsource for Game Design Workfkow for VVVV)
Crowdsource for more DX11 Shaders
Crowdsource for Multi Platform Support and OpenGL support
Crowdsource for Aduio Engine
This way there could be a Money Pot generated that enables to pay some people for some month the push the things a bit more.
Especially if you address all the Indy Game Developers, it could generate a big pot it think.
