  2. I Can Tolerate Anything Except the Outgroup

    I’m traveling and not in a position to record "SSC Journal Club: Friston on Computational Mood" so I thought I’d release this SSC classic to tide people over: [Content warning: Politics, religion, social justice, spoilers for “The Secret of Father Brown”. This isn’t especially original to me and I don’t claim anything more than to be explaining and rewording things I have heard from a bunch of other people. Unapologetically America-centric because I’m not informed enough to make it otherwise. Try to keep this off Reddit and other similar sorts of things.] I. In Chesterton’s The Secret of Father Brown, a beloved nobleman who murdered his good-for-nothing brother in a duel thirty years ago returns to his hometown wracked by guilt. All the townspeople want to forgive him immediately, and they mock the titular priest for only being willing to give a measured forgiveness conditional on penance and self-reflection. They lecture the priest on the virtues of charity and compassion.

  9. 37 - “Stay True to Your Art”: How Max Temkin Raised $10 Million on Kickstarter with NO Paid Advertising, Rejecting “Marketing Tricks”, and Ignoring “Guru Advice” (Like Mine!) - Crowdfunding Uncut

    [ Direct Download ] [ iTunes ]

    “The smartest thing we did [making Secret Hitler] was reject old fashion, old media, old world advice of how to trick people into giving you their money” – Max Temkin

    If you are becoming frustrated, depressed, and disillusioned learning about how to raise money to fund your project, then then this podcast will inspire you. Max Temkin has directly raised, or advised in a number of projects that have raised over $10 million total on Kickstarter. You MAY have heard of them… In December, 2015, Max raised $1,479,046 for “Secret Hitler”, a social deduction table game based in pre World War 2 Germany. Players, representing either liberal or fascist German politicians, have to help or hinder the beautifully illustrated Junta-Komodo-Dragon-Adolf-Hitler from being elected Chancellor and starting World War 2. His goal was $54,450 and he raised over $100,000 in the first 24 hours. But that is not where he started. His first project was Cards Against Humanity, one of the first games in the early days of Kickstarter, raised “only” $15,540 but since exploded and has been #1 Best Seller on Amazon for Toys and Games for as long as we can remember.(…and is a staple at every games night I host with friends!) In fact, Cards Against Humanity, as of publishing, occupies 3 – WOW! –  of the top 20 spots on the Amazon.com Best Seller List including the TOP 2, besting classics like Jenga and Connect 4. Max also helped advise his friends who made the Most Backed Game in Kickstarter history,  Exploding Kittens, which raised $8,782,571. Max understands Kickstarter, the Kickstarter Community, and his audience, probably better than anyone on the planet. But Max is not a “marketer”. He hates “gimmicks” and “tricks” and “gurus who don’t know what they are talking about”.Max is an Artist. If you are feeling jaded by the Kickstarter Marketing World, and think that in order to fund your project you need to sacrifice your vision, then listen now. It will be the best 38 minutes of your day, guaranteed! You will discover

    The number #1 Trend in Kickstarter Today

    Why Max still has the “fear to launch” and it never goes away, even after millions of dollars raised

    Why it is important to ignore the temptation to look for “tricks” and “gimmicks” to hit your goal and “focus on the art”

    Why no one knows really knows what the future of your project, or any project, holds

    What it means to “front load” your project, and why it is absolutely critical to the success of your project (…and also when it isn’t!)

    Why “failing a project is a gift”…and how to embrace failure so “you are not on the hook to build something nobody wants”

    Why you should never take the money if you don’t reach your funding goal on Indiegogo

    Why you should “Show don’t tell” to sell your project

    The importance of “user testing” and “iteration” to produce the best product possible before you launch your campaign (Max took a year and over a hundred iterations to get Secret Hitler just right

    The importance of knowing your market better than they know themselves

    The difference between “a good project and a good life”

    Why your story is so important and why you need to be crystal clear communicating what it is about

    Your page should clearly explain why a backer should not fund your project

    How crushing his funding goal on Cards Against Humanity set the project delivery back
