Ghost, an open-source blogging platform that hopes to shake up the personal publishing space, is nearing the end of its Kickstarter journey.
Almost a month ago, Ghost launched with what seemed like an audacious goal: Raise £25,000 to help create a new web platform dedicated to publishing. To date, the project has raised £150,000 (that’s $226,000 in U.S. dollars), and it has a shot at making its £250,000 stretch goal.
So what is it about Ghost that has resonated with users, developers and writers?
I spent some time talking with John O’Nolan, the founder and project leader of Ghost, about Kickstarter, open-source software and the future of publishing.
