Yesterday was the first day of a new chapter.
It’s the start of spring quarter here at Stanford, and with it, the kick-off of our SparkTruck class! Yesterday, twenty-five Stanford students - undergrads and grads, engineers, artists, educators, writers, and scientists - arrived at the d.school with a mission: to re-imagine the truck, make it a million times better, and launch it on its second cross-country voyage. They own the project now, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do with it.
Friends! We’ve been busy with all kinds of fun new developments, and we’re can’t wait to share them with you.
The first exciting one: the SparkTruck documentary is happening! Didi is working hard on editing a short movie about our adventures, and needs your help to make the film happen. Take a look at the trailer above, and show your support on Kickstarter!
Happy holidays and happy 2013! It’s been a while since our last update, but we’ve got some really exciting news! We’ve taken the first concrete step in making SparkTruck a recurring venture.
Somehow, even though the SparkTour has drawn to a close, we’re still finding ourselves running around the country like beheaded chickens. But it’s hard to complain when the places we’re running to are so awesome.
We’re driving north on 101 now, and it’s really strange to be heading back to Stanford after so many months on the road. I’m sure it’ll take several more weeks before we can actually process it all, but suffice it to say that it’s been an amazing adventure.
