More links

thanks J!

So far so good with lots of learning along the way

This whole process of releasing my own project on kickstarter is a huge expirement for me. The last time I released something was when my flat pack plywood furniture set was in Make magazine. That was a very different expirement all together and as story for another day.

To be honest I think I assumed that that just putting up the project would be enough to make it "go viral." I am starting to get an insight as to just what it takes to get the word about about things. I am also learning a new appreciation for the adaptability of viruses and their evolutionary course.

In my path of adaptation I have tried a few things just to see how they would go. I emailed a few blogs here and there hoping they would just pick it up and run with it. A few did, I hope a few more will before long.

I learned yesterday that if you spend 3 hours send messages as fast as you can to your friends on facybook with a form letter with the same link in each message. After sometime facybook  will flag your account and tell you that you are abusing their messaging service. Maybe they want me to buy more ads?

It was a huge pile of work for me just to get the kickstarter account up in the first place. I got everything "close enough for rock and roll" and hit launch. the question I am asking myself is what should I change to make the message more compelling to spread.

even more articles about never losing your keys

"My wife used to spend an inordinate amount of time hunting for her keys. Each time she came home, she’d toss her keys somewhere different, and then she’d forget where she left them and have to search for them later. Sometimes it would take her 30 minutes or more to find them. At first I became skilled at sensing where she left them, but then I figured my time was better spent elsewhere.
So I installed a couple key hooks right by the door where we usually enter the house, one for my keys and one for hers."

great article about how to never lose your keys...

   " ...Identify a logical place to put your keys after you come home every day. To do this, think about your daily routine and where you go after you open the door..."
