Update #3

A Final Thanks

7 comments

It is with regret that we are in the final 24 hours of this project and do not foresee our goal being fully reached. When we first realized that this may be a possibility, we began to formulate the reasons why we were falling short. We believed that every Kickstarter fan and aspiring inventor would love to have Bright Ideas on their coffee table. 

At the end of this, though, we have grown and seen what we need to change in the future. Without giving too much away, you will be seeing Bright Ideas coming back in the near future. Next time we will be more specific on the contents of the book and more intentional on marketing. Along with the interviews we have already compiled we will be acquiring more, making sure that there is something for everyone.

Thanks again for your support and we hope to bring this back to you as soon as possible.

      I hope you try again and send all us backers an email when you do.

      Interest should grow with the growth of Kickstarter. Ideas about Kickstarter are going to continue to evolve. Maybe a book is too fixed a snapshot? Something continuing might be cool, maybe quarterly magazine? I'd probably look forward to that as much as I do to Make arriving.

      I wish you guys the best of luck, and I hope to see a new campaign soon. I thought your book was a brilliant idea and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

      Maybe using the knowledge you have collected to help a current kickstarter will raise the awareness you need?
      Looking forward to getting my hands on this when you make a comeback.
      Cheers
