Donors Choose

Back in the day, there were bumper stickers saying, "It'll be a great day when education gets all the money it wants and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy bombers." Well, the web might move us a little closer to that. DonorsChoose matches teachers who need resources, experience opportunities, and other support with public-spirited individuals willing to make micro-donations. How long until something like this allows taxpayers to hypothecate their contributions to their nation's finances? (via Aetiology)
