This can take the form of peer-production (when the job is performed collaboratively), but is also often undertaken by sole individuals.

El crowdfunding , en español financiación en masa o micromecenazgo , encuentra el dinero necesario para sacar adelante cualquier proyecto creativo a través de Internet. La idea es sencilla: poner en contacto a creadores y mecenas. Un creador expone su proyecto, lo publicita y lo presupuesta.
