I'm not sure what's more obnoxious, Canonical's massively unrealistic expectations or the media's insistence on following the story.  Their plan was about as realistic as crowdfunding a fully functional Trek-style teleporter.  At best, they got a list of names to market to.  Hopefully, it's valuable enough to offset the fact that it also made them look like idiots with no business, market, or common sense.  And the media actually treated it as some sort of tangible thing.
