That Wall of Heroes video is going to be an epic length movie. If just 6 seconds per name it will run nearly 3 hours long... if I didn't push the wrong buttons on the calculator

Kickstarter is done and there are over 2000 backers and just a shade under $300,000 (just short about $5,000+). All this from an asking price of $24,000.

I'm impressed!

It's going to be cut into easily digested chunks.

But I'm glad I'm not doing that bit!

It's staggering.

And rather than pocketing the extra money like a normal human being, Marc has kept throwing in more goodies...and he's gonna sign every book!

I really admire the heck out of Marc, but I hope he has lots of pain killers for his wrists!

Surely the goodies promised thus far are only a tiny fraction of the money raised. I'm interested to see what they plan to do with the rest.
