Via @adrianholovaty, discovered this neat idea for a book: Chicago Griddle Guide, an elaborate guidebook to the city’s greasy spoons and diners.

I’m actually just as interested in Kickstarter, which looks like a good way to fund small projects, such as Andy Baio‘s 8-bit tribute to Miles Davis.

If you contribute to the Chicago Griddle Guide project, you get stuff a la public broadcasting fund drives.
