Not unlike the initial efforts to find funding for a certain inventor named Farnsworth, back in the 1920s... he eventually found funding with mainstream "VC" types, though it was 20+ years before his research produced any kind of direct revenue.
Still, the philanthropy approach might be a viable one for the short term. We'd have to set up a non-profit, then hire somebody like Al Gore to pound the phones...
Maybe this is what I should do next...??
Anybody know Paul Allen?
