Probably you have seen, a couple of weeks ago, the pretty successful “Exploding Kittens Cards Game” campaign on Kickstarter created by Elan Lee, Shane Small and Matthew Inman, famously known as The Oatmeal. From a US$ 10,000 initial goal, they have successfully pledged over US$ 5,000,000 at the moment and still have 16 days to go! We are almost pretty sure that if a totally unknown person would have created some similar cards game, it wouldn't have collected those millions, maybe not even one. So, that makes anyone think… Why some -apparently- simple cards game have pledged so much money in such a short period of time? What kind of sorcery is this? What is the secret ingredient?! Well, the answer is very simple: The Oatmeal.
It is pretty awesome what a legion of fans and followers can do. Seriously. And that fact makes me recall the Kevin Kelly’s post in 2008 about having 1000 True Fans. Yeah, sure, this doesn’t sound like a big deal, huh?...
