Thoughts On Kickstarter?

Kickstarter.com is used to help"fund and follow creativity"
1Slipknot
All Hope Is Gone


It really started getting publicity after Tim Schafer put up a Kickstarter for an as of yet unnamed project; he soon received over 3 million dollars in pledges.
2Marilyn Manson
Portrait Of An American Family


Now many bands, especially electronic groups, are considering using the site; it seems like a logical thing to do.
3A Perfect Circle
Mer de Noms


I take issue with the amount of money being asked however, for those who are into the current dubstep scene Figure, a man known for releasing his tracks free of charge, put up a Kickstarter for a new album. Having only put out singles this came as big news, the issue lies with the amount being asked for.
4Nine Inch Nails
The Fragile


He wanted $15,000 for a new album. A man who has produced and released many of his hit singles for free wanted $15,000 for an album that he would write himself, just like his singles, and then more than likely sell to the public.
5Digitalism
Idealism


So other than the issue of consumers buying a product they helped pay for, in a literal non-tax payer way, why is this much money needed for something the man can obviously do the majority of by himself?
