Yesterday I was cruising round Kickstarter looking for something to feature and I came across Try iOS: iPhone App Development Course. This is a really cool project that has now been successfully funded (in a big way). They are going to make an iOS development course that is both stylish and useful to the masses. I really liked their message delivery. I would watch these guys for future projects as well. I think they will not only deliver the current promise but many more in the future.
What really was fun though was that the very moment I checked their page out the project was in the final moments of the funding period. This meant that Kickstarter went from minutes left to an actual second count down in real time on the page. I gathered my co-conspirators in the Soma Games/Code-Monkey shop together and we watched it tick away like the launch of an Apollo mission.
This illustrates the very frontier, exploration, and entrepreneurial spirit of Kickstarter. We get to as a community cheer on and celebrate with those that succeed as well as grieve, cry and critic those that don’t. And I love it for that.
