Dear Wonderful Backers...I'm on cloud 9 right now:

I was just asked to speak at TEDGlobal next month in Oxford. I'm beyond humbled and honored. I'm going to start rehearsing right now.

What else? An article came out on my work today on The Wall Street Journal site and can be found in print tomorrow in the New York section of the paper:

And if that wasn't enough? I could not be more thrilled about meeting my Kickstarter goal. I am so touched by the support you have all shown -- it means the world (or, um, the oldest living things in the world) to me!

If you know any stragglers that had been planning to donate please do give them a final nugde: It would be great to bring the final number up as high as possible before the campaign shuts down in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

I cannot THANK YOU enough for helping me get here.
