The Library of Congress has...interesting ties to #DeltaGreen.
The job Carla Hayden has before her is to prepare the Library of Congress to serve another century of US citizens where we’ve become most accustomed to consuming information: the internet.

My friend, co-worker and L3 Chaos Fighter, Ian, built this prototype cost calculator for Kickstarter campaigns.

https://medium.com/@ianplasma/kickstarter-uses-an-all-or-nothing-funding-model-which-means-that-funds-are-only-collected-if-your-cdb9fabb7a49#.chsp3nrsk

He asked that you leave feedback (but not feature requests) on the medium page. 
An easy way for creators to budget their Kickstarter project and estimate how many backers they may need.
