I just pressed the Enter key at the right place, and the Kickstarter for my book went live.
I hope you find it valuable and entertaining, and enticing enough to click on one of the tiers and then, too, press Enter at the right place. (Or use your mouse or finger, I guess, if you’re like that.)
Please note: The early bird tier will only be there for 48 hours, and I wouldn’t want you to miss it!
Also: If you are comfortable, please share the link to the campaign anywhere you can – friends, social media, forums, etc. It might seem like a small thing that wouldn’t make a difference, but those gestures add up and can make the difference between the campaign reaching its goal, or not. There are still tons of people who’d love this book, but have no idea it exists.
If you are reading this early on, the livestream is still a go!
Join us on YouTube today, Tuesday, February 7, at 11am PST, 2pm EST, or 7pm London time. We’ll talk more about the book, the process, and some details.
(If you are reading this later, check shifthappens.site for the recording!)
Some of you reading this have been here since the beginning of this newsletter in 2017 – sending your thoughts, cheering on, or even just reading and not unsubscribing. It really meant a lot to me.
That’s why, only here and only now, I wanted to share one chapter of the book with you.
This is the chapter about the infamous keyboard of the British computer ZX Spectrum, and you know this one meant a lot to me – I mentioned interviewing its designer, Rick Dickinson, in the first issue of this newsletter and then, some time later, wrote about his untimely death.
Please do not share this link, but if you like what’s hiding inside – feel free to talk about that, of course!
And that’s it. Let’s see what happens now. If I did my job well, you might catch me on some podcasts or see some articles about the book. Hopefully, meeting the Kickstarter goal is possible, and not too far away.
