spending too much time with Kickstarter
December 24, 2011
Have you wandered around Kickstarter yet? If you haven’t I should warn you before you click over. It’s dangerous. You will find things that you want to support. You will figure out how important it is that you get prototypes that are just coming off the assembly line, art that is just being created, etc etc etc.
For me, it started with Neil Gaiman talking about his Evening with Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer.
Right now I’m trying to figure out if I should fund a new Espresso Machine prototype in order to get one of the first machines… I like my espresso machine. I don’t need a new one but they’ve created a new thermoblock… and … I feel the tug.
This is an addiction. It’s particularly bad for the art projects. I want them. I just have them. How do you say no to a Monster Alphabet Book written in iambic heptameter?
I need to stop poking about on this website. I need to stop clicking on links to Kickstarter projects.
But I won’t because that’s who I am.
