I've heard that Scott Pittman has lots of knowledge about permaculture, I just haven't seen it myself. And Scott has made it painfully clear that he hates me and he hates Geoff Lawton. And there has been .... other stuff. He has been so prolific in this that I feel .... uncomfortable offering advice in this space. And while I normally gush with suggestions about anything, my conscience won't permit it this time.
Perhaps when you try a kickstarter in the future I might be of more help.
I've got to say how much I appreciate the demeanor of the folks on these forums. There will always be disagreements when passionate personalities get together but I do enjoy the way they are addressed here with a certain grown-up grace. Human nature can be such a pain in the butt on other forums. This place almost makes me like people again.
At some point I hope to stop announcing myself as a "permies' newbie", but for posting to a thread of this 'awkwardness' - I felt it appropriate.
First of all, I second what Bill Ramsey said. And yet ...
Though I respect Paul's position - Kickstarters seems to be a great tool, perhaps even a weapon in this (peaceful) war for world domination. Your platoon may not always agree with all the other platoons in this war; but I think we're all on the same side?? What's more is that I AM IN your Platoon. I - and I'm sure countless others - could benefit from the questions raised regarding "Do's & Dont's" of successful Kickstarter projects.
Spread your pointer and index finger away from your ring finger and pinky and declare: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few". (Yeah I know, I should be quoting Albert Einstein, not Leonard Nemoy, but then I would have missing the whole Vulcan salute image )
