Hey. I'm John Coates. I work at SoundCloud, marketing our premium services.
I post/comment on anything I find interesting. That usually means marketing, sales, management, and entrepreneurship. I am also an audiophile, outdoors guy, beer geek (my videos: Beer O'Clock) and like to go really fast on skis and bicycles.
A Kickstarter where every project is guaranteed would be the same safe bets and retreads we see everywhere else. The fact that Kickstarter allows creators to take risks and attempt to create something ambitious is a feature, not a bug.
