    I pose this question which I am a little concerned about when it comes to Kickstarter. Kickstarter is NOT a mall where you pay your money and you get your product… eventually. You are an investor, you pay to help possibly make something real. But it can potentially not come together, not get made, die on the vine. My question is this… WHAT happens if the $2M+ goes to the Creative Team behind Veronica Mars and for one thing or another… they try hard but it doesn’t come together. What happens then? How does that affect the Kickstarter model? People will be less inclined to cry foul when your little widget or video game falls through, this however… it could seriously destroy trust in the Kickstarter model as a whole.

    Oddly enough, with WB behind it it could be a lawsuit.

    I can only hope to be approached by one of these fine young women on the Skypes. I’m sure that *I* will soften her heart and lead her to the path of the light!

    Odd that Brian was not even mentioned in this episode… Has he been fired?

    Oh hell no. We were just under time constraints.

    What was the TED talk you mentioned? I’m only finding some guy with an android when I google it.
