Launching first Kickstarter project related to Digital Asset Management: Transcribing Another DAM podcast

I launched the first Kickstarter project related to Digital Asset Management (DAM).

The Project

We need to fund Transcribing Another DAM podcast. Over 120 episodes of this podcast series including 80 interviews with different professionals from various organizations. The goal is to transcribe these podcast episodes from audio to searchable text.

How?

Kickstarter is a crowd funding site for projects. Someone posts a project with a defined end result. People back the projects they believe in. In this case, project involves transcribing the audio podcast episodes into text.

No, we are not going to ask you to transcribe the audio for us.

Transcription service will do all the transcribing of these podcast episodes and they charge for every minute of audio. There are hours of audio to be transcribed. This is why we need financial backing to pay for this work to be done and that is why I started this project to fund this effort.

Why?

Why do this? What is in it for you as a project backer? If you back this project with your funds and help make this project happen, you can get a reward depending on the amount you pledge. Aside from the rewards, you will be helping yourself and anyone interested in Digital Asset Management to have a full text version of most podcasts episodes, especially the 80 different interviews. These transcripts will be indexed and fully searchable so you can easily reference these podcasts and not have to take notes on what someone said. This also makes this more accessible to everyone for learning and enrichment of Digital Asset Management.

Rewards

If the project gets fully funded and we reach the goal of $3000, every backer who pledges at least US$20 to this project will get an ebook of all the transcriptions. The ebook will not be available to people who do not back this project. The ebook is a Kickstarter exclusive offer.

There are other very limited edition rewards offered. Check out the site for details.

Risks

If the project is not fully funded, does reach its goal, then nothing happens with the project. No transcriptions. No ebook. No rewards. All the money is reimbursed to backers. Move on to the next project.

I have taken in consideration that transcripts will need to be reviewed and that will take some time. There should be enough time to avoid delays in the timeline of delivering these transcripts and rewards by sometime in August. This will not be a rush job.

Am I done?

I am not finished creating more content and improving the site for users. Another DAM blog and Another DAM podcast will continue to exist. These will continue to be free of charge to access and reference for everyone.

I will continue creating more original content regularly since there is still plenty to talk about in the field of Digital Asset Management. There is plenty more to contribute and share. Some people who want this to go away, but I keep sharing more.

Are you ready to support these efforts of sharing more through this crowd funding effort?
