I dropped my venus, and the inside of the touchscreen shattered (like when a pebble hits your windshield). I don't want to buy a whole new phone, and am willing to pay for it to be repaired. Is this even possible? If so, where would I go to find somebody to fix it?!

Some companies will repair a large crack such as your if it does not reach from one edge of the windshield over to another.I would recommend replacement.Most of the time you can see the crack slightly still after the repair and delamination is a possibility later on.check with your insurance company and you may be able to pay a $50 deductible to have it replaced.
If your crack is shorter than a $1 bill, it can be repaired, I recommend Safelite auto glass. If it is greater than that, it will need to be replaced. If replacement is needed, there are many coupons that will cover the deductable upto $100 (I think)....check in the phone book.
I am not sure about prices in US, but over here in England we charge £15 - £25 for mineral glass (depending on size, thickness, e.t.c.) and £50 - £120 for sapphire glass. As for today: £1 = 1.60$. Doesn't matter how you name it - glass or crystal, both are right.
just leave it. A windshield is made of 2 pieces of glass with a plastic laminate layer in between the glass. The plastic laminate is what keeps you in the car in an accident. the crack is in the outside layer.
don't worry about it. It is not tempered glass and will not shatter like side and back glass.
So, you brushed up against your desk, and shattered your phone's touch screen? I have the same phone, and I have dropped it several times, including on concrete and pavement, and the screens have not even been scratched. I am not saying I have not been lucky, or that you might not have a dud phone, but I think you are understating the truth a bit. Also, you are asking people to solve a problem that has only a couple (very obvious) solutions: Check if the the phone can be repaired by a professional, or, most likely, get a new phone. Sucks, but that's how it goes ;)
A small chip can turn into a crack during sudden changes in temperature extremes. You take the tip of a pen and follow the line of the crack and wherever it stops in the chip area it started from. Glass will be a little more forgiving of a small pebble etc. impact when at least 2 or 3 inches from the edges of glass where it is more rigid since that is where the windshield is bonded to the body.
