Earn free upgrades while supporting The Hackers Guild

Welcome back. We are entering week two of the Kickstarter campaign and I’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of backers like yourself. The campaign has come a long way, but still has a ways to go. In an effort to say thanks for your existing support, and give you an opportunity to help me take the campaign to the next level, I am creating a couple contests for you to participate in.

Release the thunder

I recently was introduced to a new social media tool called Thunderclap. The about section of the website describes their service as follows:

Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.

The beauty of Thunderclap is that it sets the goalposts: one message, one number, one date. It’s a common threshold you and your supporters work toward together. It’s a tangible way to measure awareness.


I will be setting up 3 Thunderclaps: one the ends the 21st, one that ends the 28th, and one that ends Nov 3rd. Each campaign will also have a set a two promotional cards associated with it. Where you come in is by donating either a tweet or a Facebook post towards the goal. For each backer that donates towards the Thunderclap campaigns will receive a copy of that week’s promotional cards.

Additionally, all backers involved in a successful Thunderclap campaign will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a free set of the custom coins included in the Collectors Edition of The Hackers Guild

The first campaign has been submitted and will go live in the next 3 days and its promotional cards will be two additional targets: Games By Ray and Geekabyte Computers, as pictured above.

I really appreciated any and all support you can provide. Let’s get this campaign funded!
