$1 square inches of land in Detroit. Real land made super simple, fun, cheap, social and creative. Constantly evolving.
Hiya! This round is the done, but there's a new round up at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jerry/loveland-round-11
**FIRST! I didn't make this video, it's from http://www.youtube.com/watch... . I put it up as a placeholder for this round, but it fits really well so there it stays. :)**
UPDATE: Welcome everyone who came in from the Detroit News article: http://bit.ly/8DS3QO
DOUBLE UPDATE: Yeesh. After a long, fun road there's just 1,000 inches left in the first property, meaning this round can't go any higher than 2,300. So get yer inches while they're hot and let's fill this badboy up.
Welcome to Round 10 of building out the first LOVELAND property! Don't let the fundraising goal of $20.10 fool you, you can still get in over top of that -- after 9 rounds, we're Kickstarter pros. (Well, as much as one can be!)
The rules here are simple: For each dollar you inchvest in this project you'll get an honest to gosh real square inch of land in Detroit, MI as part of Plymouth, the first LOVELAND colony of 10,000 square inches: http://makeloveland.com/inchvestors. Claim at least 12 inches and receive a letter with a one square inch golden deed and magnifying glass in the mail. So far we're at around 7,500 inches from more than 400 inchvestors.

The overriding goal of the project is to find ways to make land ownership and use incredibly simple, cheap, social and highly creative. And you don't need to be in Detroit (though we'd love you here), we're working on ways for you to interact with your land from afar and hope one day you'll come visit your land. I'm on it nonstop working, learning, and figuring things out. Who knows where this will all go, but isn't that always so.
Inchvest today and call me, Jerry, at 908-343-1981 if you have any questions. You can most definitely purchase inches as gifts for your friends. Just get the inches yourself through Kickstarter (right here!) and let me know their names. Easy peasy.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
