The Circuit is a live tech news digest I'll be hosting on Livestream.com. I'll be streaming out of Livestream's studio in NoHo, NYC. I have a few sponsors on board already, and I'm looking to make a big splash with the show. It's the first regularly streamed LIVE show on the topic.
Eden Soto did the graphics and intro, and the production quality is high. Think E!'s The Soup but about tech. I'm also having a killer website made for it. I'm super psyched to launch this thing in the coming months.
What I need now is the money to be able to cover all of these costs. I've invested money out of pocket into it right now, so the sooner I can make it back, the sooner I can put more back into the show.
Thanks in advance for all the support!
Any questions or comments, please email me at email@example.com, or send me a message through this kickstarter.

seconds to go
Sep 4, 2009 - Dec 1, 2009
Pledge $5 or more
Exclusive backer updates, and you get my undying love and unflinching loyalty. Not to mention the knowledge that you were a part of making one of the best shows on the web a reality. And, I'll read off a list of your names on the show. If you send me a photo of you I'll run that as I say your name too!
Pledge $10 or more
A $10 pledge will enter you in a raffle to win all kinds of things. Everything from a set of Etymotic Research HF2's to a full year of Squarespace hosting. Enter as many times as you want. Though, if you want to enter you have to select this reward when you pledge. Selecting another reward will get you that selection. If you pledge $100 and select this reward, you'll get 10 tickets in the raffle. If you select the Shwag Bag, you'll get that and no tickets.
Pledge $100 or more
Get the updates on the show, and all the 5$ stuff, and a permanent mention on my site in thanks. Plus, I will send you stickers and whatever other paraphernalia I decide to create for The Circuit at my expense (US only).
Pledge $200 or more
For every backer pledging $200 you'll get yourself a one week pre-roll and inline sponsorship spot on the show. Got a t-shirt? I'll wear it. Product to showcase? Send it along and I'll demo it live on the show. Want to do a Skype interview? Give me your username! When I do sponsorships I do them right. I want to make sure you feel that you're getting your money's worth.
Pledge $500 or more
For every $500 that a backer pledges, they will earn themselves a three-week placement as a sponsor on the show. (pre-roll, inline ad) The show is going to have a massive audience, so this is a great opportunity for sponsors to step up. If you pledge any multiple of $500, you'll receive another three weeks of sponsorship placement per multiple and get an extra week tacked on as well. :) (BEST VALUE)
Pledge $1,000 or more
You get the $500.00 reward, AND I will make a special video to air on The Circuit showcasing your brand or product. The video can range from a tour of your product to an interview with it's creators to doing a full break down of all of its features. The point it is won't be just an inline ad. I want to showcase your product on the show. It will be something of a commercial you'll be able to send people to down the line. Again, I want you to be happy with the product.
