    Totally agree on the impact crowdfunding is and will have on our world. It's comical that at each state of the union, the president focuses on big business manufacturing jobs when those numbers are small relative to the employment potential from an entrepreurial society. The thing I'm most excited about sites like Crowdfunder and Kickstarter and Indie Gogo, is that I think you guys are introducing the opportunity to launch to people who might have not thought to launch previously. In other words, there are folks who have an idea and are looking for funding, and now crowdfunding presents a new potential path, but I'm talking about the folks who weren't previously thinking about incorporating, who had no interest in the traditional capital markets, and who are now diving into business through this social approach. So all that said, hurrah - to you guys and to everyone else who's shaking up this landscape.
