DRAGONtail - FoxFIRE Fiberglass Short Tenkara Rods Kickstarter

Over the years that tenkara has been around, I've had two wonders.  First, why are the rods always so long and second, how come no one was using fiberglass in the construction?  A shorter tenkara rod would seem to have quite a few applications for small water and fiberglass, especially in a shorter tenkara rod, would likely be a perfect material in a rod that had full-flex capabilities.   Well, it appears that my questions were answered in DRAGONtail's latest Kickerstarter push with the FoxFIR...

Today’s Outfit: Relance Running Shoes from France

My daughter and I were just talking about signing up for Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run because Instagram and Facebook have been showering me with their ads. And let’s face it, that pumpkin hoodie and finisher medal looks really cool. If you carry a pumpkin for the run, you get the Tough Pumpkin finisher medal. I’m thinking that’s worth a shot!

Arclight Pedals put moving bike lights under your feet

What’s the best thing to make drivers wake up and realize there’s a cyclist in front of them? Lights and reflectors are good, but what about moving lights?

Interview: Johnny Galvatron Can’t Believe He Got Carl Weathers for The Artful Escape, Either

The Artful Escape is finally out on Xbox consoles and PC and it has been a long time coming. It was originally a failed Kickstarter from 2016 that gained life when Annapurna Interactive swooped in to help Johnny Galvatron, the game’s director. Senior Gaming Editor Michael Leri interviewed “Galvatron” (which is, as you may have guess, not his real name) about the title’s long development, how starstruck he was working with Hollywood talent, his thoughts on whether a star-studded cast detracts fro...

Raspberry Pi-based Pi-KVM Goes to Kickstarter (linux today)

LastPad is a reusable menstrual pad that does away with disposable towels

Direct to consumer online sales have helped a number of female-focused startups get products to market in recent years — often pitching better designed and generally more thoughtful feminine hygiene products than mainstream staples. The lack of innovation in the mainstream market for feminine hygiene has certainly created a gap for startups to address. Examples in recent years include companies like Thinx (absorbent panties for menstruation) and Flex (a disc-shaped tampon alternative for wearing...

The last time I left my apartment with a wallet in my pocket was March 11, 2020 (guess why). I don’t carry one anymore, because wallets are bullshit, and you should stop using one, too.

How to Launch a Successful Kickstarter Marketing Campaign

Ready to launch your brilliant new idea on Kickstarter? If you don't already have a solid marketing strategy and a decent list of leads, then you may not be as ready as you think. Kickstarter is not a place to market your new product, and it's not a place to introduce your ideas to the world. Kickstarter is a venue for receiving funding from your existing leads and hopefully picking up some additional cash from casual KS browsers.

The Cosyspeed PhotoHiker 44 is the most comfortable photography backpack I’ve ever used

I am notoriously difficult to find backpacks for, as I’ve mentioned on here before.

Role’s video role-playing platform makes a $2.75M charm attempt on the burgeoning tabletop world

Tabletop gaming is in the middle of a historic boom, despite recent restrictions imposed on in-person gatherings by COVID. The tools adopted by game masters and casual players to play remotely are powerful but not always the easiest to use or adopt. Role hopes to change that with a super-accessible video platform focused on the social aspect of role-playing games, and it has raised a $2.75 million seed round to do so. It’s hard to say what has powered the incredible growth of the tabletop gaming...

A New World Order review – silence is survival in dystopian thriller

Extra Crunch roundup: Influencer marketing, China’s tech clampdown, drafting growth teams

Before you hire a marketing consultant who doesn’t understand your products or commit to a CMO who has several years of experience — but none in your sector — consider influencer marketing. If the phrase evokes images of celebrities hawking hard seltzer, think again: An influencer can be as humble as an enthusiastic Reddit user who manages your Telegram channel. According to Uber growth marketing manager Jonathan Martinez: “ … You don’t need to find influencers with millions of followers. Instea...

Indiegogo’s CEO on how crowdfunding navigated the pandemic

Andy Yang joined Indiegogo at a turbulent time. As the crowdfunding platform’s then-CEO stepped aside for personal reasons, the service also reportedly grappled with layoffs. Coming on board after a stretch with Reddit, the new CEO would have less than a year at the helm before COVID-19 turned the globe upside down. Now 13 years old, the San Francisco-based site matured alongside the world of online crowdfunding. And, certainly, Indiegogo had a front-row seat for all of the ups and downs. Indieg...

Kickstarter’s CEO on the future of crowdfunding

Kickstarter announced on Wednesday that backers have pledged $6 billion to more than 200,000 projects over the course of the crowdfunding site’s history. The milestone comes a little over a year after the platform hit the $5 billion mark. A matter of weeks before the company hit that last massive round number, however, it revealed starker news. Kickstarter reduced its staff by 39%, through a combination of layoffs and buyouts, as newly minted CEO Aziz Hasan noted a 35% drop in new projects. The ...

Extra Crunch roundup: RapidSOS EC-1, how to prep for an M&A exit, inside Genki Forest

According to one estimate, Americans call 911 about 240 million times every year. Sending emergency services to the right location sounds straightforward, but each 911 call is routed through one of thousands of call centers known as public safety answering points (PSAPs). “Every 911 center is very different and they are as diverse and unique as the communities that they serve,” said Karin Marquez, senior director of public safety at RapidSOS.
