Be nice. Or else.
What I think is missing on the website is an explanation of why I should sell on Lollie instead of on - for example - Gumroad. Is this supposed to become a viable way of selling products, or is it something I should use when I have some product laying around and am fine with it making just $10 to see where it goes (in which case, will it even be worth the effort)?
If you believe in efficient markets, you'll always make less money selling something on Lollie rather than elsewhere where you can list it for the market price, because people will stop buying above the market price. So it's not going to average out the cheaper sales that have been made earlier. Just a thought.

So edgy. Looks quite decent though.
I'd argue that their presence has had nothing to do with proper branding.
And this isn't going to hurt your neck over the long term?
Most hackathons are very welcoming to designers. I've been to three now (TNW Kings of Code, PennApps and HackTheNorth) and noticed a growing attendance of designers. It's also no problem finding a team that is looking for a designer since it gives a great edge over the projects. Design and UX seem to be part of the judging criteria almost anywhere.
Can someone explain to me how anything this guy does looks so good?
American Express does the same thing through their travel office, although you need to be a card holder. You just send an email to the travel agent, he/she gets back to you with suggestions, you pick the one you like best and next thing you know your flight is booked and you receive your itinerary. It is incredibly convenient, and I like how this now is accessible to everyone.
So is this completely automated, or is there still someone manually narrowing down possible flights that suit your preferences?
I'm sure they spend more on other things that don't necessarily increase their ROI
I don't think you're familiar with the way this company is operated
That's a very good point, as that seems to decrease actual no shows by a significant amount. I know that some restaurants have switched to tickets instead of reservations, which might be interesting to incorporate in an adapted scenario.
