Kickstarter Drama

Interesting story on Gizmodo about a 3D printer Kickstarter campaign gone awry. This follows a long, infamous list of failed Kickstarters. In fact, the list is so plentiful now, that it has begot its own subreddit: shittykickstarters.

That said, I just received my Freewrite the other day, and while some people are panning it as a 500 dollar hipster keyboard, hipsters are waxing effusively over the product’s anachronistic simplicity. I think it falls somewhere in between those poles, and hope to write a review soon. Whatever your opinion, while the Freewrite was delayed, it did come to life as a fairly accurate representation of its initial vision, so I’d say that’s a definite success.
