  1. Gillmor Gang 04.21.16: Purple Tears

    The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Frank Radice, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor. Recorded live Thursday, April 21, 2016. The sudden death of the Artist Forever Known as Prince reverberates across generations, decades, and the melting pot of pop, soul, funk, and rock and roll. As the presidential race settles into a social media-led micro-messaging revolution, we’re in for a summer of partying like it’s 1999. Let’s go crazy!

  3. Bruce Sterling’s “Black Swan (a cyberpunk story)” / Boing Boing

    Bruce Sterling brings us a tale of espionage, cyber-threats, alternate realities and intrigue in “Black Swan”, a dark and cyberpunk novelette.

    Luca is a technology blogger looking for anything newsworthy. ‘Massimo Montaldo’ is the nickname of hacker living on the fringe of society. What can happen when these two very different people meet each other?

    Massimo has discovered something, something that could shift the balance of power among the superpowers of the world. A Black Swan.

    What is a Black Swan? “A black swan, when it arrives, cannot even be recognized as a black swan. When the black swan assaults us, with the wingbeats of some rapist Jupiter, then we must rewrite history.”

    As a journalist, Luca must investigate, learn the truth – or should he? What if this is all beyond him, beyond his ability to fully grasp? Memristors? Euro-Liras? Spies and the possibility of an Alternate Italy?

    What if the risk is too high, the danger too great?

    Warring between what is safe and what is right, Luca had to decide if reporting the truth is worth the risk…

  6. Ep 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!) | Entrepreneur: 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

    Famous last words:

    “Finally, I am not the funniest guy in the room”

  8. Podcast 500: SE Stands for Super Exciting

    The Macworld podcast celebrates its 500th episode! Yes, 500 years ago—we mean 11 years ago, this podcast started humbly as an experiment by a Macworld intern turned staffer recorded partly in a conference room with a nerdy guest named…Glenn Fleishman calling in remotely.

    In this episode, after a welcome from one-time staffer Cyrus Farivar, Susie and Glenn talk with columnist and former editor Jason Snell about Apple’s introduction of the iPhone SE and Jason’s hands-on time with it. We also discuss the latest in the FBI/Apple case, the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and the iMessage security flaw patched this week.

    Glenn takes a literal field trip this episode, too, to check in with a long-time contributor about his ruminations on the paucity of thoughtfulness among pundit: We chew the cud with the Macalope.
