Dave is well known in the New Haven area as an experimental game developer and creative head, and his new experiment tests the American Dream…literally.

If Dave reaches his goal of $1,00,000 by Dec 4th, 2009, then we can rest assured that the American Dream is alive and well.
If not, I bet Dave would still feel pretty good 100 Large!
