I was quoted in Why Kickstarter Outfunding the NEA Isn’t a Good Thing on Read Write Web. I actually have way more to say about this than what was included. You can read some of what I’ve said in a 4 part post the UCIRA blog (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4).
Don’t ask me about this in person unless you want to hear me go on for at least 20 minutes.
