Many artists, designers, technologists, musicians, filmmakers and geeks share one thing in common: larger-than-life dreams. Whether aiming to create a top-rated iPhone app, launch a new comic book series or provide clean drinking water in third-world countries, these ambitious goals often come with large price tags.
Kickstarter is a website that helps fund creative projects across a range of disciplines by collecting small donations from fans online. The social aspect of the site also allows communities to thrive, keeping followers connected with each other and the cause. If you haven’t heard of the site, you’ll enjoy getting lost in the various popular projects they currently have posted.
Here comes the best part: We’re excited to announce that Charles Adler of Kickstarter will be joining us to keynote Geekend 2012!
Gather your questions and get ready to hear about how dreams are made into reality. We’ll also take a look at the cultural shifts of funding from a small number of wealthy families in the Renaissance to today’s culture where everyone can contribute. If you’ve got big ideas of your own, prepare to be inspired!
The cherry on top? There’s still time to snag a great deal to this year’s event. Early Bird ticket sales end August 31st. For $95, you’ll receive full access to the 2012 event and Geekend swag (while it lasts). This keynote and ticket deal are not to be missed!
