One Hour To Go
I'm over 25% over my goal, but I was hoping for a lot more than that. I'm not sure what this will mean in terms of publicizing, specifically the symposium/presser in DC in February, and distributing books to policy makers. I won't be able to support it at the current level, though everyone who contributed and requested one will obviously get a book. I'm open to comments as to how to do another Kickstarter for specifically that (e.g., what would the rewards be -- more books?).
I guess the next question is (absent a massive flood of last-minute donations) -- can I do a press conference or symposium as "performance art" and sell it to Kickstarter on that basis? They rejected my original proposal for this project because I mixed the book publication with the publicity -- not clear whether or not they'll accept a project just for publicizing, because they like to emphasize "creative" projects.
