Today I got an email from Kickstarter. The Wines of the French Alps project has been successfully funded! Hooray! Here is the text of the note
Thanks to you and 451 others, Wines of the French Alps: Savoie, Bugey and beyond has been successfully funded. Your pledge has been charged, funds will soon be transferred to the creator, and they’ll begin working on their project.
Sometimes the good guys win!
Kickstarter is so easy. One cannot help but see its influence grow and grow. In this case, it made me aware of a very cool author and wine expert and introduced me to a region that I know little about. I like all of this. The key was to get a heads up by Fred Wilson about the project. Thanks Fred!
