Serious Games As Collaborative Publishing: Carbon Zero Just $2 K From Threshold

Serious Games challenging us to play a better future

Join Alex Steffen in an experiment in collaborative publishing!

Following my recent post Serious Games As Collaborative Publishing: Join Alex Steffen's Carbon Zero @ Kickstarter, here is update #1 from Alex Steffen:


Thank you so much for your support, encouragement and enthusiasm. It's been great hearing from you, getting your ideas, reading your blog posts and tweets. This has been an absolutely wonderful experience. Thank you.

And it's working! Our community-funded ebook Carbon Zero: A Short Tour of Your City's Future is now just $2,549 away from hitting threshold goal of $10,000. If we can go over $10K, we're making a book. That could happen today! It would be a great statement to hit the baseline funding in less than a week (and might create some sponsorship opportunities, allowing us to do an even cooler project - more on that soon):

Thank you for joining OPEN and I in this experiment. I appreciate it deeply. I don't think I've ever had more fun putting a project together.


Eliane’s personal note: Will you come join Alex Steffen and back this project today? Pledges can be as little as a dollar, but for $10 or more they have cool, gamified rewards to share. It only takes a minute to pledge. I’m a backer and it feels a lot like a Serious Game!

Will you go to their Kickstarter page now and do it?
