This is the best article you have ever written, or at least that I have read. You hit the nail right on the head, you were straight to point and told it like it is. Kickstarter is the catalyst for dreams, but in the end, money is what keeps the ship afloat and the reality is that more money means more product, more quality (or so we'd like to think) and it allows those who love doing what they do, to keep doing what they love to do.
RIP Ryan Davis. I was talking to my roommate earlier today about this. He introduced me to Giantbomb three years ago, and he's been around since the beginning. He was saying how shocking it is for him to pass away. Someone that he has been listening to, regularly for five years of his life (and three of mine).
