Because of your interest in fan-based funding and the independence of the new Dish, I thought you might find the Veronica Mars movie kickstarter project interesting. [Yesterday] morning it had about 30,000 dollars, right now it has about 1.7 million dollars. And this isn’t some indie movie; it’s a real Hollywood production.

As of now it’s passed $2.5 million, in just 24 hours since launch. The project’s goal was $2 million.
