Successful fundraising with Kickstarter
August 8, 2010 7:21 PM   Subscribe

"In April 2010, Ashley Rawlings and I used community fundraising to raise nearly $24,000 to breathe new life into our book, Art Space Tokyo. My goal [in this blog post] is to outline what we did and why we did it, with the hope of inspiring anyone with an itch, gumption and a good narrative, to do the same. To bring beautiful, well-considered things into the world."

I picked up a copy of the book via the kickstarter project. It's quite nice. I'm not entirely sure i'll ever have a chance to really use it, but as pretty books go, this one is quite nice.

All of Craig Mod's blog posts are pretty damn good.

Quite nice twice? I need an editor.

A bit of an aside, but would that all blogs were so exquisitely designed!

How much user data flows from Kickstarter to funded projects?

We are given contact information for their kickstarter accounts. But we never get addresses unless people provide them for shipping, etc.

jscott, like e-mails or just kickstarter account names?

Made possible in part by Metafilter's Own™ waxpancake.

And, err... apparently also by our own jscott!

I'm merely an advocate and fan of Kickstarter, not affiliated with it in any way other than giving the founders a headache from talking their ear off at various events.
