My friend Mark Kirby is part of a team that is launching Howler, a new magazine about soccer aimed at North American fans. But to get started, they’re seeking support via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. For more on Kickstarter, which I’ve used avidly since its inception, I recommend this short article by Carl Franzen.
And you can read more about Howler at Forbes, where Jeff Bercovici has an interview with co-founder George Quraishi on why the team chose to go the Kickstarter route. This magazine is going to be awesome.
