IndieGoGo is much better. They don't hold your money hostage. They don't come down on you for getting creative with Twitter. My Kickstarter campaign barely made it, thanks to my mom's credit card, which I will reimburse, so in the end I'm actually getting 50% of my goal, happy for that, but Kickstarter's policy of all or nothing is just plain stupid. Why would I want to put all my effort into a campaign and have it miss by 1% and get nothing? They say it's so projects aren't halfway funded or incomplete. Well, people can adapt and get resourceful and use what they are able to raise, Kickstarter. I'm grateful that Kickstarter is there and I got to use it, don't get me wrong, but thank god there's IndieGoGo! IndieGoGo actually helps you market your campaign, unlike Kickstarter, which just leaves it entirely up to you to spam your Facebook friends and Twitter to your 10 followers (but you can't use Twitter beyond your followers, oh no!). Fucking pompous attitude there. Not everyone has a masters degree in social networking, Kickstarter. I still have little idea, aside from helping Iranians fight for their freedom, just what in the hell Twitter is for... it's like we're all being corralled into this worldwide high school popularity contest by Twitter and Facebook. Kickstarter seems to only rely on this, while IndieGoGo has a longer term, build what you can theme, which makes far more sense to me.
Thanks for reading my rant.
