MITH Digital Dialogues: Ian Bogost, I Kickstarted Your Project And I Didn't Even Get The Lousy T-Shirt

When: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Where: Hornbake : 0301
Event Type(s): Lecture

As crowdfunding becomes its own form of entertainment irrespective of whether or not projects succeed or fail, the projects created risk becoming empty shells, lies that can never produce the results they promise because their existence was never meant to produce them in the first place. This talk offers a philosophy of crowdfunding as entertainment, and then presents a new project in development at Georgia Tech as a part of the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing that tries to apply some of these lessons from popular personal electronics projects, including Kickstarted products like Twine, and related projects like Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
