teehee

I really liked this TNR piece by Noreen Malone on Kickstarter-- I've been waiting for a piece just like it-- but this made me chuckle.

Yeah, maybe. But it's not really *that* objectionable beyond being obnoxious and biased towards a specific type of company. Adapting to funding models-like flashy videos and stuff here-is something startups have always had to do. And some cool stuff does get funded.

It took me a re-read to get it, too.

Notwithstanding the laugh about the placement of the online panhandling sentence next to the New Republic request for money, I think Freddie earnestly liked the article (which is that to which Anonymous is responding with his/her defense of Kickstarter).

Which is just to say that it's unclear whether Anonymous missed the joke or merely chose not to reference it with(in) his comments
