*sigh*. Do I even need to say anything, here?
When you write a blog like this, eventually you stop caring about how dumb the projects are, and start trying to get into the head of the people who make them. This is what I find fascinating.
I suppose that if you just read (or more likely skimmed) Kickstarter’s promotional materials, you might somehow get the impression that Kickstarter users were just crazy, rich philantropists who were handing out money like candy out of the pure goodness of their hearts.
… But if you were making a Kickstarter project, wouldn’t you at the absolute least take five minutes to look at other projects? To check to make sure you understood correctly? To make sure someone didn’t beat you to your brilliant idea? Or even out of basic human curiosity?
How does this guy not understand how this works?!?
Oh well. He’ll learn.
Or maybe not.
