Thanks for this, and biting into a lemon without a bitter face - good job!
This video stimulated my thinking; that's always appreciated.
An initial round of 'crowd funding' will be initiated after establishing a viable pitch. After viewing your video, though aimed at those seeking investment funds rather than 'crowd funds,' I'm considering ways to demonstrate to potential 'donators' ("donor" sounds so medical), that the World Maintenance Project is not only worthy of their donation dollars, but also truly and realistically viable - without requiring the tedious and involved explanations that many will not take the time to wade through. This is a big challenge.
Though based on old and forgotten concepts, the World Maintenance Project goes beyond present day institutions with wide ranging and far reaching consequences. Your 'problem/solution' approach seems to be the most applicable (The Truth about Funding), but as you suggest, it's important to do each type of pitch, even if only as an exercise, as one never knows what circumstance one will find oneself. This will help immensely.
Demonstration of actual results is obviously more desirable than convincing of potential results. I'm going to find a way to get as close to that ideal as possible.
