Update #16

Help Bring Jawbone Radio Back!

Comment

Hey gang:

(Excuse me if you get this message more than once, but I'm messaging everyone who backed my Kickstarters in the past.)

I am currently working on a new Geek A Week Kickstarter that I'm hoping to launch in the next few months. PLENTY of planning involved in this one. So keep that on your radar screen. But until that launches, I wanted to mention that my wife Nora and I are currently running another Kickstarter to bring our podcast, Jawbone Radio, back for a 10 episode season. For those who aren't familiar with Jawbone, it was one of the original podcasts on the net. It inspired a lot of other shows and also helped influence shows like The Morning Stream with Brian Ibbott and Scott Johnson. It would be great to bring it back, but we need your help! Here's the link:

Thanks for your support on all the projects!

Geek A Week Season 4 Launched!

Comment

Hello backers of Geek A Week: Legends of Videogames!

I just wanted to give you a heads up that I just launched the Kickstarter for the FOURTH season of my Geek A Week project! It's a new 8 card set featuring geek faves such as Ernie Cline, author of Ready, Player One, Jenny Lawson AKA The Bloggess, Parry Gripp, Jen Yates AKA Cakewrecks and others! Plus for the first time ever, I'm working on creating a fan set of Geek A Week. There are reward levels that allow you to become an official geek in the base card set and also a chance to be added to the Geek Pantheon at geekaweek.net. Check it out!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1337047168/geek-a-week-version-40

Head on over, check out the project and if you like it, pre-order your set today! Or choose to be an Official Geek A Week. It's up to you!

Thanks for looking and please help me spread the word!

Len
