NEWS: Kickstarter hits the UK on 31st October

As of All Hallows’ Eve the crowd-funding site Kickstarter will be open to UK-based projects. From the end of the month the site will list UK projects alongside those based in the US, but from today people here can start building their project page in time for the 31st. When Halloween finally rolls round, an email will be sent out by Kickstarter to signal the all clear, allowing UK members to fully launch their projects onto the site. This should hopefully mean that all those UK creators out there can start seeking alternative, low-cost funding for their projects in these austere times.
