Thinking Physically with Yancey Strickler
How the former co-founder and CEO of Kickstarter wrote and researched his new book
In 2017, Yancey Strickler quit his job as the CEO of Kickstarter, rented a small apartment in Chinatown, and started to write a book called This Could Be Our Future.
As the former co-founder of the startup that created the category of crowdfunding you might think he was writing about technology. But, no.
He didn’t even write with technology. He switched off the internet completely, and turned the walls of his part-time garret into a canvas painted from wall to window with splashes of Post-Its, and decorated with stacks of books on post-capitalist theory.
