Humble Bundle has proudly announced today that the pay-what-you-want charity has reached the $100 million milestone.

 

Patreon reportedly valued at $450m – We talked previously about how YouTube is censoring of sorts by deciding who gets paid for their content via advertisers (removing this source if you have a gun or talk about a gun… even a Destiny ray gun or whatever in your content) Well… Money will find a way. The key is in Patreon’s higher payouts for creators. YouTube for example pays channel hosts 55% of the ad revenue earned from their videos, while Patreon promises 95% of subscribers’ fees go to the creator.

 

Big Brother Mars Edition: Mars research crew emerges after 8 months of isolation The crew of four men and two women are part of a study designed to better understand the psychological impacts a long-term space mission would have on astronauts

  • Do you think you could have lasted 8 months? What sorts of things do you think went on? Do you think that any ‘close encounters’ occurred? At the very least, do you think that anyone was no longer the master of their domain (hint – hint, wink – wink), even knowing they were monitoring heart rates, etc. ?
