More top-notch crowdfunding advice in this episode of Crowd Scene. Mike and Pete are joined by Gerado Cid, an entrepreneur and designer who – by cunningly weaving together the world’s 214 subway systems, 791 lines and 11,924 stations – has created a stunning map that has taken Kickstarter by storm.
The idea was inspired by a 1959 map created by the Architect Constant Nieuwenhuys. He called his idea ‘New Babylon’, an imaginary borderless system the size of the entire planet were people can travel without restrictions. Gerado and his team have revised this idea to create a map that represents human mobility.
In addition, this new format show features “crowdfunding expert” Chris Day who offers up some truly original ideas for wearable tech. Mike also cajoles Pete into reading the news.
