Kickstart or Kill
Founders & Dragons
Surely this is some sort of startup Singularity: Someone is trying to raise $100,000 via Kickstarter in order to make a documentary that would educate the world about Bitcoin and its global “socioeconomic impact.”
Says one interviewee featured in the sizzle reel, “There should be a lot more documentaries because of the complexity of how Bitcoin works.”

Though he reportedly hasn’t played Dungeons and Dragons since high school, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian tweeted today that he will be interviewed for a documentary about the fan favorite role-playing game. Mr. Ohanian, who lives in Brooklyn Heights, will have his apartment temporarily turned into a set for Dungeons & Dragons: The Documentary. As he put it, “Wee!”
This is neither here nor there but strange enough to note: a screengrab from a Chinese documentary, Chinese Police, which features at exactly 30 seconds in a photobomb from no less than Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg. Mr. Zuckerberg, who reportedly visited Shanghai at the end of March, is shown walking with Ms. Chan behind a pair of grim-faced Chinese cops, looking oddly amused if not downright tickled by the scene in front of him.
The site that originally reported the photobomb (docu-bomb?) translated the subtitle on-screen during Mr. Zuckerberg’s appearance as “Many problems impelled the Chinese police to find way (sic) to increase efficiency.”
