    Quoted from Grizlyrig:

    I'm not sure what to think of a kickstarter with big names involved. If they really need the money to get going then maybe they should take a risk and save and use their own. Isn't that how most companies and projects got started back in the day?

    If you can fund a project with other people's money and minimal financial risk to you spending your own money and shouldering all the risk doesn't make financial sense.

    Let's imagine the Kickstarter fails. They still have the option of funding it themselves.

    Potential upside= high
    Potential downside=low

    Quoted from jar155:

    It's not your fault, and I don't care anymore. I'm done with Stern as they're currently operated.

    Can I have your AC/DC?

    It would be interesting to hear details on where their estimates were wrong. Did they underestimate cost to pay writers, photographers, travel, editing, printing?

    Or maybe time estimate was off, costs were close?

    Quoted from hool10:

    I'm literally hitting the panic button here now.

    I don't think that word means what you think it means.

    Quoted from j_m_:

    had I known the sh!tsh*w that this would become, my $300+ would have been better off buying complete strangers a round at the local bar

    It's not too late to salvage at least that much. I'll meet you at the bar and we can commiserate about the loss of your money. I prefer Russian imperial stouts.

    If you'd like to upgrade to a higher tier I also drink scotch and bourbon.

    Quoted from puck:

    We might have a winner.
    If you are in on this book, can you go nudge them on the kickstarter page. I can’t imagine that Pinside will get much traction.

    You might try the Whois info for Paperflock.com. Phone number and email addresses there.

    Quoted from phillymadison:

    the completed CD archive from Stern giving us 5 TB of new data!

    Let's see, one CD probably holds 670 mb. 5,000,000 divided by 670 = 7,463 discs. No wonder they are behind schedule.

    he was told "I can assure you it's still being worked on"

    Your friend, 'By whom?'
    Stern representative, 'Top men.'
