I would be curious to know your position on Kickstarter's fee of up to say, 30%, of the entire Kickstarter total.

From where I stand, a million dollars for hosting a web page for a month or so...

Try 5% there, sparky, so it would be around $160k of the $3.33 mil total in your example. Which really, when you're considering the cost of server maintenance from the immense traffic driven to such huge projects, not to mention the fact that they're providing an outreach service, a central place for all this stuff to happen in... Is that really unreasonable? Guys like Fargo and Avellone would be the first to tell you that KS deserves a lot of credit for what they've made possible, how they've impacted their livelihood in such a positive way. That fee is a pittance compared to the terms and conditions associated with traditional fundraising.
