Back in 2003 Andy Baio launched a site dedicated to the art and technology events, it was called Upcoming and things were going fine as Yahoo had acquired the site in 2005. However, things started to go downhill after the founders left a couple of years later with the site closing down last year and disappearing from the internet completely. You might think that is it for the site, but not according to original founder Andy Baio! He has other ideas and is looking to relaunch a new and more improved version of Upcoming.org, its all thanks to Yahoo who has sold the domain name back to him.
As there has been nothing significant created to fill in the void left by Upcoming, it seems like a great idea to see if there are still fans of site out there looking for home. In order to bring new life into Upcoming the site will need to be totally redesigned providing user with all of the features expected from a modern site. This is where you come in; Andy Baio has turned to the crowd funding site Kickstarter, in order to get the necessary backing for the launch of the new Upcoming site and as ever, every dollar counts!
