Re: Exclusive "Ask Me Anything" Interview with Ethan at United By Blue

For well established companies who can presumably bring a product to market without kickstarting it, what are the main reasons for crowdfunding it? Is there just no better way to gauge demand for a very new product, or does the campaign substantially boost demand (vs. putting the fees and other camp...

Re: Rewards taking a nosedive?

I sympathize, since (1) I've been disappointed by projects before, and (2) I love getting extra perks. But in the end, I use this as a way to hear about potentially interesting projects that I would have missed.

But I agree with some of the comments that t...

My initial impression is good, and I would have kept reading, mainly because it has a distinctive look, and I'm probably part of the target segment - I love wool everything! Also, I'm in Philly and so I'm familiar with UBB - definitely work on seeding the campaign in Philly, BC, and among past backe...
