I've just purchased the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and writing that sentence makes me angry. To be clear, I love the show but I hate that I bought it through […]

Failing the crowd
Earlier this year I hit the crowd-funding sweet spot: interesting campaigns coincided with disposable income. This had never happened before. I backed two projects, one Kickstarter and one IndieGoGo. […]
