Jaffe, Microryza, Locally sourced science, "In many ways, Jaffe’s campaign is a model for any scientist considering crowdfunding their research, especially established academic researchers who have subsisted on government or foundation grants, and who haven’t spent years cultivating a fan base.

So I went outside the system.”, "I’m sure this won’t go over well with the powers that be. It sounds like democracy and the free market in action to me."
