    At that price point, the pressure will be high to maintain deep credible content. That said, it is a great test to see what the pay-threshold is for specialized content. Sounds like the Kickstarter angle may just complicate the business model. It will be interesting to watch evolve.

    • Bobbie from MATTER here: sorry, but I’m only getting around to responding to some comments now after a crazy week. We’ll probably post about how our Kickstarter funds were used once we’ve spent them all (we haven’t yet and while I could make projections, it seems a little silly to do so).
