The NYT's had an article on entrepreneurs, getting crowd funding and how it puts pressure on the company to deliver product. As far as I can tell, crowd funding is great, I'm a big fan. If you are going to make a product, at some point someone is going to get very stressed, at least, I always am. I guess the spot light of a successful crowd funding effort, must be really bright. Kind of like winning the lottery?
When I think back at what I was at 22, vs. what I was at 35, just can't imagine taking that multimillion dollar round, then having to play it out on twitter as a young guy. By the time I was 35, I had seen much worse.
I can imagine prototyping here in Carbondale and trying to raise money by crowd funding very easily. I'm planning on it.
Of course, your comments are welcome.
