Message From The Board (Written by Jason Scott)
Hello. My name is Jason Scott. I'm a historian, documentary filmmaker,
and have run three kickstarter campaigns in the last couple of years.
I did not invest in Schuyler's kickstarter, but I have kept tabs on it
and watched as things spiraled out of control. I consider Schuyler a friend and I was saddened to see had badly things have have gone for
the project, and for Schuyler.
A little while ago, I proposed to Schuyler that the only real way out of the current situation was to appoint a board of folks, a handful of people who would oversee the finishing of this kickstarter project, to bring it to a close as best as could be managed. Schuyler has agreed this is the best course of action, and here we are. Currently there are four people on the board.
* Andrew Gagne, a friend and associate of Schuyler's
* Jason Aller, a Kickstarter Backer personally affected by this
* Brian Martin of Attrition.org and the Errata project
The purpose of this board is extremely simple; finish the Kickstarter (where possible) to the satisfaction of contributors. End this campaign with products (where possible), refunds (where possible), swapped rewards (where possible), and generally bring closure to this.
I'm not here to justify or apologize for the current situation, and neither is any other board member. What we are is an attempt to bring communication and closure by sorting through the mess and coming up with a set of goals that can be completed in a timely manner.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or called at (215) 839-8345, if you wish to not go through kickstarter to find me.
Thank you for listening.
