Thank you & A New Goal for Circuit Classics

May 3rd is here! A few weeks ago this campaign was still feeling pretty theoretical to me and I am still so amazed and grateful to each person who’s backed her that the Circuit Classics campaign is off to such a phenomenal start. I was not prepared to see the crowdfunding goal so quickly and easily cleared (on day 1) — THANK YOU to everyone who has backed this!

Since then, pledges have nearly doubled — currently 246 people have funded the campaign to 197%!  Nearly $20,000 pledged. I know how meaningful Forrest Mims’ work is to so many of us — I’ve been delighted to hear stories from countless people whose lives were transformed by encountering his work. In combination here, I am honored to be entrusted with bringing this project forth to you.

There are 27 days left in the campaign, and I’d like to see us go further. I will not set a dollar goal here, because my aim is to reach as many people as possible and I feel that while crowdfunding campaigns often focus on dollars, that this is a different and special project. I will measure impact in terms of how many people can be have the experience of understanding electronics through Forrest Mims’ work, revived and revitalized in a post-Radio Shack world. It would mean a lot to me to get to 500 backers before the campaign closes. Can we do this?
