Hoy Hoy!

    Man who's done a gazillion campaigns! I make stuff. I design stuff to make. I may have acquired a mountain upon which to make stuff.

Water + Dirt = EVERYTHING (almost anyways)

I've designed a wet desiccant atmospheric water harvesterer. Runs on wind and sunshine. Among other devices for the terraforming of difficult terrain (like a high altitude mountain).

My part is that I don't IP protect anything that is designed for subsistence - water, food, fuel. I want to see these machines in the people's hands - and the people liberated from Urbania.

I am consistently ignored by the digital world (Tributaryhouse.com if you are so inclined) so....

Would you a nepotistic bone me throw - to share some of that celebrity - when I begin my sad march into the world of being overlooked (crowdfunding)?

Would be very appreciatory :)

When josiah and the ponder family had a kickstarter, i put a huge effort to helping their kickstarter.  And it wasn't enough.

I was worried that when I did this kickstarter it might not be funded.  

The moral of this story is: me putting my weight behind a kickstarter is not a guarantee of success.

Further still:  I've seen some kickstarters I wanted to support but there was something off about it:  the presentation was poor, or they wanted too much for the paltry rewards, etc.  

So you could have a great product, and plenty of attention to your kickstarter and it still flops.
