Re: OOTS in the Media
Both efforts can, and should, be done in parallel.

The OOTS Kickstater Drive article can, and should, have information about the impact of the Drive on the wider world. Stuff like how it inspired a number of other webcomics (erfworld and a couple of others I've seen) to do their own, media discussions about crowd sourcing as a creative funding source, criticism (there has been some) of the way it worked, impacts on Kickstarter, etc.
When you look at it that way, making both articles makes sense. I also note that I don't edit the OOTS article, so it's not like the time I spent putting the other one together hurts the main article at all
