Funding - The web's T-shirt economy

From Jemima Kiss MediaGuardian:-

Wired has a great piece about running a web content business on the power of T-shirt sales. In these tough economic times, startups need all the help they can get...

Burnie Burns started the machinima comedy series Red vs Blue with two friends in 2003, and nearly one million people were downloading the show each week for free. Burns did what any internetter with initiative would do and put the show's one liners on T-shirts. Before long he was selling enough to pay everyone a salary - it turned their hobby into a business.
