"I want to say gay" all over the interwebz!
First off, thanks for backing the project! Yesterday my inbox was a flurry of "I want to say gay" flowchart emails, tweets, and comments from all over the 'net. Check out some of the notable spottings below:
- Buzzfeed.com (where it racked up over 20K views in the first few hours)
- The San Francsisco -ist (sfist.com) (where it was “featured” on the homepage)
- The Laughing Squid (who actually embedded the Kickstarter project)
- I Love Charts (what may have started it all, where it collected a few thousand more notes than any other post yesterday)
From what I can measure, between the sites above, some Facebook share threads I've been linked to, and the original article on my website, the graphic was viewed roughly 110,000 times yesterday. Pretty cool!
Clearly, people virtually dig it. Now we just need to get it into schools so young people can start digging it in person. And if you doubt that, check out the screen shot below of an email I received in response to this project. It's one of the best emails I've received from the site, and it happens to be from one of the sharpest 11-year-old allies I've ever encountered.
Let's keep it up!
We're about halfway in timewise, and just over a quarter of the way there fundingwise. If you want to see this happen, share the link with your friends and (most importantly) explain why you backed the project.
Yours in silly-but-serious graphics,
