I think we are in a fundamentally sound place when a nation of people all have a fair shot at accomplishing their dreams.  Kickstarter is exactly that; one of the fair shots at doing something meaningful with your life; something that you can be proud of.  It’s a website that allows the artistic or creative community to come together and pitch ideas that others may or may not be willing to support.  It’s putting everything on the line and saying, “Here’s what I want to do, if you believe as I believe, help me accomplish what I’m setting out to do.”  It’s boldness, it’s faith.  It’s a lot of things rolled into a communal support group, but what is most appealing and most innovative about it, and the real essence to what this fundamental notion of a website is; it’s an idea.
