This Week in Kickstarter

Share this post

Busy week over at Kickstarter HQ. Earlier this week we rolled out some new features that benefit all creators. First, we pimped out the dashboard with all sorts of amazing new features. Can you say "analytics"?!?!

THEN, we went ahead and added this sweet little preview page that you can send to your friends to get feedback before you launch. We were pretty excited about both, so we had a party. And that party just so happened to be the premier of Girl Walk // All Day. It.Was.Awesome. Photographic evidence above, and below. Big thanks to Jacob Krupnick, Anne Marsen, John Doyle, Dai Omiya and the rest of the Girl Walk crew, the Joshua Light Show, Mister Saturday Night and our very own Kendel Ratley for putting together such a magnificent evening. 

While we were busy dancing, others were, well, being a little more productive, as evidenced by a couple of choice updates this week. The guys behind the Trebuchet have been packaging their, um, trebuchets and are preparing to send out 250 this week, with more to follow. In the meantime, they posted this badass update which finds Marshall cleaning the 11,500 counterweights needed for the project. Oddly enough, this is not a still from an episode of Breaking Bad

All that acetone got you thinking about a seasonal feast? Same here! Which is great, as we've got a curated page that is sure to inspire you to create the best holiday feast this side of the Mississippi (whichever side your on). Head on over to our Learn to Cook page to ensure that your holiday feast doesn't end up like an episode of Hell's Kitchen

In other project update amazingness, Tom & Dan from the Cosmonaut (formerly known as the artists behind the Glif) posted this beautiful behind the scenes video of the manufacturing of the Cosmonaut. Mr. Rogers even makes a special appearance. WARNING: This video may make you a bit teary-eyed.
