Congratulations, Synergy fans, you have been heard!!! Tonight this Kickstarter project WILL GO LIVE!!!
After Kickstarter.com rejected our original application and appeal, Howard Handelman and Pat Panzera formed Friends of Synergy. Brian Wendt and Dean Sigler, among others, threw a polite online hissy fit about it, and AVWeb told Everyone the bad news. Emails were sent, EAAers stepped up far and wide at every level, and somewhere in all of that hubbub Kickstarter had a change of heart.I received an email from a human being with a name, Callan Lamb, explaining that he "wanted to reach out and let you know that we've reconsidered your project submission...this is an incredibly ambitious and creative project that we'd be excited to see on Kickstarter."
Kickstarter has now greatly improved their project guidelines for design and technology submissions. Since I don't know who to thank, I do know who to thank, and I will continue doing so for as long as I live.
