Gentlemen,

The Uplift Prize got a recent article in 3dprint.com

[3dprint.com]


But we need people to start spreading the crowdfunding campaign, and get some initial momentum going :

[www.indiegogo.com]

Crowdfunding was always going to be a stretch, since non-profits often don't do well, *and* the Uplift Prize may not be understood by many.
But we need volunteer help in getting more donors. Anyone with prior crowdfunding experience in particular.

A prize like this can speed up RepRap innovation while greatly expanding awareness and participation. But it can only succeed with more help from those who are passionate about RepRap.

Since this is a non-profit prize, run entirely by volunteers, no one other than the Prize recipient makes any money in any form. But the best way to do philanthropy is to do what you do best. So we really need volunteers to bring their various talents.

For those of you who haven't been here long enough to already know about that prize, it has been a part of the reprap community effort for quite some time.

We have a sub forum dedicated to discussing it : [forums.reprap.org] so browse it for information if you are interested.


Most of my technical comments should be correct, but is THIS one ?
Anyway, as a rule of thumb, always double check what people write.
