I was digging the BONSAI product. Truly inspired - especially after I just clogged up my bathroom drain (again) with whiskers this morning. Also new this week, a few friends of mine just launched the prch SHADE STAND on Indiegogo - http://www.indiegogo.com/prch

This is our first foray into internal product development with design students and crowd-funding as a whole. I'm hoping this is a great learning experience for all of us. Any advice on launch next steps here would be greatly appreciated. Thx - Deub
