Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for July 11, 2013 – “Too Much Of A Good Thing”

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, July 11 2013. I once again praise Auphonic as a friction reducer for podcast production; I talk about “blockbusteritis” and how I think it harms all media from large to small, old to new, Kickstarter projects and about anything; I rail against reporting about the process rather than the facts; I talk about social media and weight loss and the 7 minute workout and how that compares to NaNoWriMo and videobloggers. “Do something that is not nothing!”

    on thought on the over reaching on kickstarter and that is the Kick it Forward idea, those how over fund putting some of that overage towards other kickstarters (http://kickingitforward.org/) but in general I think you are right about the getting as much as you can shouldn’t be the idea, getting what you need should…

      I’m less concerned about the money being taken out of the system and more concerned about extra money making success less probable for the project. Wild over funding immediately puts things into a different scale than what was the original vision. It’s always breathlessly reported as an obvious win. I’d love stats on success for say 10X and up vs baseline.
