Cloudy Days are over + Kickstarter's B-Day
I hope everyone is doing well and getting excited for summer. I just wanted to shoot you a note since many of you wrote us regarding the new versions of TikTok+LunaTik and were having trouble getting to LunaTik.com to order them. Well, just hours after we posted that update it turns out that the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Service was not very elastic and resulted in a widespread crash that took down many brands ranging from Pfizer and many federal government websites to Foursquare and Reddit to little LunaTik.com. I took several days for them to resolve and fix the problem and since we were the small guy it took them 4 days to get us back online. We apologize for the frustration and inconvenience. We are now totally back up and functioning. Thanks for your patience and support.
Also for those of you interested, Kickstarter just released some stats for on their 2nd birthday and its pretty impressive what the incredible backers of this project accomplished and the impact it has had on Kickstarter's growth. See the graph below. Your support and influence transcended the design and product industry. We get calls from musicians, angel investors, real estate developers, students, etc that were all inspired by this exciting new digital tool. Congrats to all who contributed to promoting this fantastic new platform that is empowering many aspiring artists, designers and entrepreneurs in all creative fields!
Lastly, as more and more projects hit Kickstarter I try to stay on top of them. Here are two interesting ones. One is Tembo Trunks that turn your Apple earbuds into mini portable collapsible speakers. There is only 42 hours left to get the Tembo Trunks. And for those getting their bikes out of storage, the other is pHOLD, an aluminum bike mount and case for the iPhone that looks pretty tough.
