Dear 420 Backers,

You are doing an incredible work! 

Thanks for your messages of support, thanks to those of you who have already increased their pledges or that are planning to, and thank you for spreading the word!

There are 19 hours to go.

Now, we only need $700. 

Whatever you are doing, keeping doing it because it is working!

Cheers, 

Patrick

FINAL PUSH

Comment

Dear Backers, 

First of all,  I would like to thank you for your tremendous participation, the numerous messages of support  and, of course,  your pledges!

There are only a few days left but I am confident that we can still make it!

More than ever, it is important that you keep spreading the word about the project . 

Also, for those of you who are willing to increase their pledge, I will send you,  as a token of my appreciation,  my downloadable immaterial lamp "Click"  that has been awarded Best of Category by the I.D magazine 2010 Annual Design Review (See the preview at www.blankbubble.com/click).

Success is only a click away!

Thank you very much for your support.

Patrick

Chers Backers, 

Il  reste moins de 3 jours avant que la campagne de levée de fonds pour Linx ne s'achève. 

Tout d'abord, je souhaitais vous remercier chaleureusement pour vous être mobilisés, pour vos nombreux messages de soutien et  vos contributions financières qui vont, je l'espère, permettre au projet de se concrétiser.     

A ce jour, le plus dur est fait et plus de $22000  ont déjà été réunis, et ce grâce à vos efforts! Il ne manque que $8000 (5990 euros) pour atteindre l'objectif des 30 000 dollars.  

Bien que le temps presse, tout est encore possible! 

Plus que jamais, il est important que vous continuiez à diffuser l'information autour de vous.

Pour ceux d'entre vous qui sont prêts à augmenter leur contribution, je propose, pour les remercier, de leur envoyer  ma lampe immatérielle "Click" qui a reçu en 2010 le prix du meilleur design dans sa catégorie, par le magazine ID. (Une démo est disponible à l'adresse suivante:

 www.blankbubble.com/click

Nous sommes près du but et je suis sur que nous y arriverons. 

Patrick

And most importantly, YOU: 288 persons who are already backing the project! That's quite a nice crowd! THANK YOU GUYS!

There are 5 days left and I have never been so motivated! 

Let's keep at it! ( yeah ok, I let you off the hook tonight, you can go watch the Oscars...)
