    I haven't connected with much of Gaiman's work, but I still think it's pretty cool when a recognized geek icon mentions OoTS.

    Now, if Terry Pratchett commented on OoTS, that is when my brain would explode.

    We should get George R. R. Martin over here. Imagine him and Rich working on -anything- together. Heh.

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.

    No Good Omens? Well, that means you've read everything...

    Only kidding, MoonCat. I'd actually put money on that being one you have read. It was just a roach-like response that had to be given!

    And, for the record: Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett are my two favourite authors of all time. Well, writers. Well, storytellers. (Neil, you're a multi-media pain to the cataloguing system.)

    Rich is just below them, would you believe, sharing a tied-space with Ursula Le Guin and Daniel De Foe? (Yes, I'm weird.)

    If we're talking crossovers: I've die a nerdy death of happiness if Terry Pratchett would allow Sam Vimes to join CPPD for a day in the PDF limelight... Or, I'd settle for Nobby. And, Colon, natch.

    EDIT: Actually... Nobby might work as an incredibly improbable half Orc-Halfling combo. Particularly when you bear in mind what his father was like.

    Unfortunately, it would work better if Rich hadn't said he doesn't read Pratchett.

    Read it, love it to bits. However, I can't be sure how much of it I liked was the work of Neil Gaiman, not Terry Pratchett.

    You are now allowed to email Neil Gaiman and hope he might reply in person. Seriously, you prove that his experiment with making American Gods free to download was not a blip.

    The problem with rich doing something with Martin is he's too brief... 800+ comics? That's barely enough room for 2 1/2 books!

    :p

    Plus... the main cast has been alive WAY too long... god forbid they'd get involved roy wouldn't of been the only corpse by now.

    The comic would update even less frequently than it does now, and 1/2 of each page would be lingering shots of stick-figure food.

    For the record...particularly awesome given the hubbub about Wikipedia and attempted deleting of OOTS's entry a while back...

    This Kickstarter drive has had enough media coverage to qualify as Noteworthy enough to have it's *own article* on Wikipedia (it's not up yet, but it's coming soon...)

    I daresay that should qualify as a feather in Rich's cap, or more appropriately a trophy on his wall :)

    I think a specific article on Wikipedia about the KS drive is a bad idea. I'd much rather spend time and effort making a better, more complete article for the OOTS, including the information regarding the drive.

    I would guess from the article that in total there's about 100k books being printed of which 25-35k will be sold, which should equal to about 65-75k books ending up in stock.

    I think that this information isn't set in stone though because even Rich does not know how much money he is getting yet. He posted on the Kickstarter site saying that he doesn't know how many of the pledges are international, nor how many are from TX or PA, so he isn't clear on how much money is actually getting to him.

    Both efforts can, and should, be done in parallel.

    The OOTS article can, and should, have information about the impact of the Drive *on* the OOTS universe, the additional material, the stuff, the fact that Giant can now reinact the scene of Haley counting bags full of gold pieces, etc. It should have a crossreference to the Kickstarter article and the Drive article (once it's live)

    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

    I'll say: I've just splurged on a .cc domain-name for future creative endeavours as a result of all of the above. Creative Commons Licences ftw! Creative Crowd, too...

    I'd've not have researched this to the point of finding a draft of the correct licence for my needs, were it not for the Drive. And, I doubt I'm the only one by a long chalk.

    Hrm. I really don't like how the Crain's one says that I have a chronic illness that "limits my ability to attract Web advertisers." As if I wanted my site to be plastered with ads, but I just couldn't manage to find any willing to take a chance on me.

    I'm not going to add articles that mention me once, then go on to talk about Kickstarter, but the PW and Crain's are definitely going on the list.
