Thanks for posting.
Yes the fees are crazy high and must be a real barrier to entry for newbies. There are multiple scaling options on the horizon which will help; but these obviously have barriers too. Ethereum still has most of the interesting projects and development though. I'm sure we'll see fees become less of an issue as scaling solutions roll out and direct on-ramps to these appear.
Clearly quite a few VCs out there talking up there bags too, so always worth considering that when you see the next anti-ethereum tweet storm.
