Jay Lake Kickstarters Cause Paypal Freeze and Apology

Two kickstarters to benefit Jay Lake, one to help pay the production costs to finish the documentary Lakeside, the other to pay the cost to sequence Lake’s geneome for further study, met with such great success, the latter raising $10,000 in less than five hours, that Paypal froze Lake’s account due to the sudden influx of donations. Due to a Twitter campaign, Paypal quickly rectified the situation and made arrangements to donate to the Kickstarters as well. Lake has been battling cancer since he was first diagnosed in 2008.
