How does YC change rewards?
Our intent is to honor the rewards we've set out, but we'd like to adjust our time table a little bit. As we work toward demo day, we want to learn more about how people develop and we want to see more about how people will interact with some of the ideas we have. In order to do that, we're going to release a "playground" of sorts in which we can have people try things out. This won't be the full version of light table (primarily because that doesn't exist yet), but will give us a chance to see what you guys think. Ultimately, I think that's exciting for everyone - we get to push some cool ideas out and let folks play with them and you guys get fiddle with some of our stuff and tell us what you think. Aside from the playground, however, our intent is to keep basically the schedule we've laid out here. Nothing about shirts has changed, and our access levels to the real light table will all remain the same, barring any disasters along the way.
For those of you who pledged at the higher levels, getting to mess around in the playground might make it less compelling to keep your pledges that high. Should that be the case, Kickstarter lets you change them. The feedback rounds and early user testing in those rewards, however, will remain the same. :)
Thanks for bearing with us and I hope you're as excited as we are.
