Wow, my heart goes out to these guys, I guess they dropped the ball but obviously they really cared. It's hard to fault people when they made a good faith effort and came up short. I hope after things settle down and maybe they get some space away from this, they try again on a new project with a bit more wisdom.

I think the lesson here (and this one really is probably important for entrepreneur types), is getting funded really should not be viewed as an achievement. It just means the stakes got higher.
