Elizabeth is a professional belly dancer, a flaky computer scientist, and a returned Peace Corps volunteer. She lives in Georgia (the state of the U.S., not the country) but is nonetheless somehow not a combination of stereotypes from Gone with the Wind and Deliverance. Her personal blog is Coffeefied. Operafied. Fluffified. Beglittered.

    Errm, the greek Indiegogo close to its goal? Am I missing something? It’s at 1.4 million, of 1.6 billion, which is less than 0.1%, no?

    While this crowdfunding idea is not the *worst* idea, I don’t see how it would have any chance in hell, unfortunately.
