132 people have pledge close to half a million dollars. That's like 25% of the total from 132 people, or a little more than 1% of the backers.
Good for Joel getting this kind of financial support so quickly. It really speaks to the loyalty he engenders among fans.
But...if the goal is creating a streaming service as a permanent home for content, and as a funding source to create that content, a better number to focus on for both Joel and the fans would be the total backer number. He is going to need people who are interested in subscribing and willing to do that on a long term basis, and he's going to need tens of thousands of them to pay monthly or yearly subscription fees. 25,000 people paying $10 a month wouldn't fund a single episode using Joel's own numbers, after the Kickstarter funds run dry.
