Open Source Poetry

In yet another random variation on open source, this got funded on Kickstarter.  The author says that in a moment of boredom, some friends visisted Omegle, a website that connects the user to a random stranger via text, and asked about the meaning of life.  The Kickstarter page lists some of the answers and describes a project to collect them into a book.

It also says, “If we raise over $1500, I will vocode one of the poems from the book (on a stolen vocoder) and perform ambient music behind it, which will get sent as an MP3 to every backer at the $5 level and up.” This sounds more like a threat than a promise, to me.
