This comes after a previous announcement that the NerdRage youtube channel was shutting down, as NurdRage was losing access to his current lab and lacked the ~$250,000 necessary to establish a replacement space. For his final video he asked his viewers to decide on the one experiment they most wanted to see. The overwhelmingly popular choice was, “let us give you our money” (paraphrased).
If the funding campaign is successful, NurdRage will lease/setup a small laboratory, and purchase enough chemicals for two years of weekly videos. He estimates that about 10% of his 300,000 subscribers are active, so success will likely hinge on the silent majority of viewers who watch the videos, but do not subscribe.
He has my support.
