Please meet Frank.
Jesse Thorn, the host of Bullseye, and the co-host of the comedy podcast Jordan, Jesse, Go! with his pal Jordan Morris, came up with an idea a few years ago to give free ice cream away to people for no other reason than it sounded like a fun thing to do for strangers during the summer. Thorn and Morris raised nearly $10,000 on Kickstarter for the random act of kindness, teamed up with Sweet Action Ice Cream in Denver, Colo., and made a little movie about it. Jesse was kind enough to take some time to answer a few questions I had about the experience.
Yesterday, a graphic designer posted an ad on Craigslist titled “Designer Looking For People To Do Their Job Without Pay (Anywhere)” which poked fun at people who post ads on Craigslist asking designers to do free work for them. I emailed the designer asking for a short interview. The designer, who goes by the name Mr. Furley, responded and was gracious enough to answer some of my questions. He was a wonderful curmudgeon.
