IONTW – October 2, 2016

The KDFC instrument drive continues through October 7.

There’s the new economy of crowdsource funding, I’ve supported several projects this way. They’ve all been one time deals though. However, turns out there’s another model – that of ongoing support. Patreon facilitates this for creative types, I found out about by way of Maia Kobabe’s campaign. Seems like a win-win.

The masses can also help bring movies to the big screen outside of the traditional distribution channels. Seed looks like a great documentary about precious natural resources and the threats to them.

Sadly, one of the founders of Volagi, Robert Choi, was struck by a motor vehicle while out on an after work ride and is in the hospital. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help defray medical expenses. The story relates that initially his injuries seemed minor, but he later collapsed and was found unconscious. Scary stuff.

On a lighter note – just in time – pay no attention to those folks raining on Pumpkin’s parade.

And, speaking of time! The physics of Now.

Sonoma County Art Trails open studios coming up the next two weekends, October 8/9 and 15/16. This is a great opportunity to see and buy art, meet the artists and see their studios, and see parts of the county you might never get to otherwise.

Mark your calendars for an Open House at Sonoma County Taiko! Saturday, October 29, 10 AM to 4 PM.
