Sam and I wanted to be in touch to let you know that we've now got a great design for the Uni from a team at MIT, and we're rolling! We've just launched our project website here:
and we've also just this weekend launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise funds to build the Uni. We've already had pledges totalling $3,000, so this bodes well for us meeting our goal by August 15 (we only get the funds if we make it by our deadline).
We'd love your help spreading the word to Beyond Books attendees and others. All levels of pledges help! Because of Kickstarter, we've also already been in touch with activist/future-thinking librarians in Denmark and Finland who are interested in a Uni. But first we have to build one and run it in New York.
Here's the link to our Kickstarter page, with more info and updates:
