Crowd-Funding Phenomenon Continues – Comic Raises $1.2M on
Kickstarter (+Q&A with Creator Rich Burlew)! | Singularity
Wow. Rich Burlew just raised over a million dollars from his fans. For
drawing a comic based on stick figures.
Granted, it took him nine years to to get the fan base for this, but
still, that's quite a payout. And the best bit is that he did it on his
own terms without reliquishing his intellectual property (link via my very first post).

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
