Kickstarter in the New York Times

Share this post

Kickstarter is featured in today’s New York Times in an article written by Jenna Wortham. The article gives Kickstarter a nice overview, and focuses on a few specific projects, including Earl Scioneaux’s Electronola and Emily Grander’s 365 Postcards, and Emily Richmond’s solo circumnavigation, Sarah Sharp’s 50 States, and Grand Opening’s Wedding Chapel, where the photos were taken, are also mentioned. All are incredible projects deserving of the spotlight (so many projects are).

Obviously this is a huge honor, and we’re thrilled to be covered. We do have one correction: the article states that Kickstarter pledges are not tax deductible. Some pledges are tax deductible: if the project creator is a 501c3 that is registered as such with Amazon Payments, pledges would be deductible. It’s up to each eligible project to handle.

But anyway: thanks to all the backers and creators for participating in the piece, and thanks for everyone’s support.

EDITED TO ADD: The Times just added a second Kickstarter piece, this one on their Bits blog that talks about Polyvinyl’s Kickstarter success. Awesome!
