We (by which I mean you) did it!
Last night, you all pushed us $206.01 past our Kickstarter goal. Don’t ask about the penny.
We’ve done Kickstarter projects before, so you’d think we’d be used to it. But watching the people you love make your dreams come true is always overwhelming. I hope we never get used to it.
Thank you. We’re so grateful. We’re going to work as hard as we can to make sure Ruckus NYC is an amazing day for everyone, and if you can’t make it on the day don’t worry - everything will be online afterwards.
Thank you so much,
Kevin, Zach, and Victoria
Today is the LAST DAY to back the Ruckus NYC Kickstarter and we’re SO CLOSE! Don’t wait till tonight to back - we’re a little over 7 tickets away from our goal, and we need your help to make it.
Thank you for making Ruckus NYC an awesome event.
Produer, Connector and Consultant Mike Roderick just featured Ruckus NYC on his awesome blog, One Producer in the City!
First of all, Whoo!
Second of all, check out this blog! Mike’s a theater producer, but he also just knows everybody, and is fantastic at just plain making things happen.
Today, Ruckus NYC did two things. First, we opened up submissions for sponsored tickets. If you’re a working artist and need a ticket to Ruckus NYC and you can’t afford one because, well, you’re a working artist, email Kevin at kevin.ef.clark at gmail dot com. They will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, and there are a limited number available.
Second, we published our budget. Our $5,000 Kickstarter goal is a lot of money, and you deserve to know where it all is going, and how hard we’re working to pay the artists who are making this amazing event possible for you. We’ll be updating the Google spreadsheet as we go through the conference, so you can see everything that happens, and everything we spend.
Thank you for your support.
Ruckus NYC presenter Thomas Deneuville of I CARE IF YOU LISTEN has donated tote bags to the Ruckus NYC Kickstarter campaign! Thank you, Thomas, for helping make Ruckus NYC a reality.
Glenn Fleishman’s awesome and thorough write up of last weekend’s XOXO festival highlights both the awesomeness of the event, and the contrast with Ruckus NYC.
This all raises a big question: how do you get a good mix of artists and technologists together?
