77% of the goal 54 hours in! + Nerd Nite Video
As of this moment, we’ve raised 77% of the goal, and we’re about 54 hours into the 30 day campaign. Hooray!
First of all, I just want to say WOW, holy magilicutty(sp)! I’m trying to capture the emotion I’m feeling. I think it’s plain old Love. It’s definitely a warm, full feeling in my heart region that has a swelling quality [and no- it’s not a heart attack].
After working in relative isolation on this thing for years, it’s both moving and humbling to discover I’m not alone. There are times when doing a project like this when it feels like a complete vanity type of thing, because no one is asking me to do it, and here I am asking all of you to help me do it. I am also aware that it is truly rare to have these projects succeed with all of the distractions and appeals each of us get in a thousand ways every day.
So thank you for taking the time to read, watch, click, consider, to share with others, and back this project. It makes this our project, and it gives me truly more energy and inspiration to get this project into physical form: Carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen....(and 11 or so others when you factor in the elements in printing inks!)
About a month ago, I opted to step up in front of a hundred or so people, and do a Nerd Nite talk at the Live Nite Club here in Ann Arbor. It was about this book, and the process that’s going into making it, and you can watch it below or at this link:
