55I’m often asked, how can I support this important work?
Three primary ways to support this work include:
1. Make introductions to great people: We are able to do the great work that we do because people are very generous making introductions to people they know.
2. Back the work: We are able to hire top students and travel to collect data, and build great systems, because we receive generous sponsorship from foundations like the National Science Foundation, industry like Adobe and Microsoft, and individuals. We are now experimenting with crowdfunding through Benefunder.org, a crowdfunding platform I’ve advised designed specifically for researchers.
3. Spread the word: If you find something interesting and relevant, share it with someone else who might feel similarly if they got their hands on the information.
