Yesterday, Seth Godin launched a project on Kickstarter for his new book “The Icarus deception: Why make Art?”
Here are some reflection on the launch itself :
Reflections on today’s Kickstarter
First, thank you to my amazing readers. To say that I had an overwhelming day is a bit of an understatement. The Kickstarter reached its goal in record time, less than three hours after I first posted it. We met and then blew away the stated goal. It means a lot to me that you’re so connected and generous.
As promised, I’m going to do a few updates to share data and insights that might help the next person.
You can learn from this and start to build your own triiibe !
You will probably read today on Seth Godin blog, the announcement of the second Linchpin meetup.
The date the organisers will propose is the 7th of december.
You can launch your own meetup in your city or join an existing one here.

In bestsellers like Purple Cow and Tribes, Seth Godin taught readers how to make remarkable products and spread powerful ideas.
But LINCHPIN is different. It’s about you–—your choices, your future, and your potential to make a huge difference in whatever field you choose.
