[EMS Discuss] EMS Event Idea: Kickstarted Panel

I propose that EMS host an event where we invite 3-5 people in the local
area who have a successful kickstarter project to come in to EMS and give a
panel discussion about their experience. Basically we would just let each
of them talk about what their project was, what went well, what lessons
were learned, etc. for 10-15 minutes each. If reasonably advertised, this
would give us some good exposure, bring some people into the shop, give
something useful back to the community, etc.

I'm thinking with the holidays nearly upon us and with the need for a lot
of logistics ahead of time, that this event would be sometime in February
or early March of next year. Ideally it happens in the shop, and ideally
that's the new shop by then... part of the benefit for us is exposure to
the kind of person who is thinking about kickstarter, for whom we might be
a good resource.

This is an idea I've been mulling over for a week or so, and I want to
credit Austin for a side conversation that got me started on this line of
thinking. I'm willing to do most-to-all of the legwork, but I would very
much welcome assistance and collaboration from anyone else who thinks this
is a good idea. Let me know if you want to be involved and in broad strokes
some idea of time available to work on the project.
