Yes, potato salad belongs on Kickstarter
See the original posting on The Verge
The potato salad Kickstarter hit $40,000 yesterday,* and The Verges editor-in-chief Josh Topolsky wanted to talk about it.
“Isn’t it a gross abuse of Kickstarter? Doesn’t this run counter to what they’re trying to do?” he asked. “Is this the kind of business Kickstarter wants to run?”
This is a common reaction, but I think its a misunderstanding. First, theres always been a place for jokes on Kickstarter. Second, this particular joke is especially fitting given Kickstarters current goals.
