DieselSweetieWatch: The Economist gets baffled by Kickstarter.
As more money flooded in during the project, he set intermediate goals. For instance, he wound up committing to eat two pounds of bacon, despite being a vegetarian (two donations of $666 each), and to produce hundreds of USB memory sticks that resemble his Red Robot character. He also pledged to drive a vintage Pac-Man arcade console from his western Massachusetts home to Wil Wheaton, an actor and writer living in California. (Mr Wheaton, best-known for playing a young starship crew member on “Star Trek: Next Generation”, is a friend of Mr Stevens’s.)

And more of those people are mixing it up in NoHo than ever before.
