Gruber the booger:
Well they couldn't afford a full week sponsorship on DF but hey, at least they could afford an embedded ad.

Where's this weeks sponsor?

John is working awfully hard on a day of the week.

If it was acquired by Yahoo in 2005, then how did it "run for a decade" after that if it was shut down in 2013?

It launched in 2003. It was shuttered in 2013. That's math even you should be able to handle.

But that's not what the text says. It puts the "running for a decade" *after* the "acquired by Yahoo part.

Or do you have problems with reading comprehension?

Which comes right after 'launched in 2003.' It 'running' for any amount of time isn't contingent upon Yahoo owning them. They writer would have said 'it running for a decade under Yahoo before being shuttered in 2013.'

You read as well as Gruber writes.

why did he do a kickstarter for it? i assume it sold for at least a few million. is the guy so bad with money that he didn't have $30k sitting around?

always good to defray the costs though i guess.

in summary:
can I kickstart a competitor to kickstarter?

Off The Verge:
Was written like it was running for a decade under Yahoo though, not that it matters much.

He should run it for a couple of years and sell it back to Yahoo.
