One of my big heroes - designer, teacher, thinker extraordinaire Frank Chimero - is publishing a book this year. And if that news weren't exciting enough, he did it through a very now means - he used Kickstarter to fund it's publication. Kickstarter is a site where individuals can solicit funds from the general public to support the creation of their Big Idea. And Frank was able to do this in a matter of hours.
Incredible. Leave it to Frank to do something this cool. Can't wait for it to come out in print.

PS - Thanks J Vizz for the heads up.
