I am so excited to announce the Launch Party for the Kickstarter phase of this project. This event is important in generating even more awareness of the project, which is critical to finding participants and getting the interviews in front of young people.
Those that I have interviewed in the Grand Rapids Area have been invited to attend with transportation provided if required. Not only do they deserve the honor of recognition for their participation, attendees will have the rare experience of being able to talk to them about their stories.
In addition, ten local Grand Rapids small businesses that specialize in ‘analogue’ type services have been asked to sponsor rewards for the first ten donors at the event. Not only does this offer even more publicity to great local businesses, the prizes will remind donors to slow down, that tech doesn’t hold all the answers.
